Washington State attorneys experienced in estate planning and family law

A strong advocate with a holistic approach to family law and estate planning

I am a strong advocate and am deeply committed to my clients. Through my years of experience practicing in multiple jurisdictions, I understand complex family dynamics and can provide sound legal guidance in sensitive matters. At times, unique situations may call for unique solutions. I like to adopt a “big picture” approach to my cases and enjoy working with clients on strategies that make sound legal sense.

As a graduate of a top-tiered Canadian law school, Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, I began my career working as a practicing attorney in Canada.  I moved to California where I gained admission to the California State Bar. I practiced law in Los Angeles for thirteen years before relocating to the Seattle Area.

I look forward to working with you!
