Some clients ask for “a lawyer who’s a pit bull.” Pit bulls do one thing well – but when they attack, you have to hope they’re attacking the right person, at the right time. I do a lot of different things. I’m a litigator and a negotiator. I listen. Then I tell the true stories of my clients. I pay scrupulous attention to financial details, realistically assess available options, innovate strategies and execute them. And when the circumstances really call for it, I bite someone. I've been recognized as one of Washington's best civil rights lawyers since 2004. joined Trister Ross on February 1, 2016. I continue to represent employees in discrimination cases and severance negotiations. I also advise Trister Ross clients on employment law compliance.
