Claimed Lawyer Profile

Emigrating from Japan in 1981, I was thoroughly convinced that life in the USA offered the values and virtue I so desired. After deciding to make America my home, I was able to start a construction company by 1984. By 1986, I was building homes and since then I have been serving the company as president. I have been involved with hundreds of projects and have an extensive hands-on knowledge of construction methods, processes, and the full range of governmental issues that too often implicate today's builders. The company's main business has been land development and construction of new homes.

If you are looking for a lawyer who has experience in fields other than the practice of law, you have found me. I know the high and the low points of life and each turn of my life has made me more compassionate about people's hardship, more passionate about helping people and more understating of the nature of human beings. I believe that this non-law related experience has made me a better lawyer.

I am also a Real Estate Broker with twenty-five years of construction and land development experience. In the past I have been a mortgage broker and I have also originated residential and commercial loans. I have an extensive knowledge of lending law and this experience has been very useful in negotiating short sales and loan modifications in today's adverse real estate market.

I am currently admitted as a member of the State Bar of California and the Washington State Bar. I am fluent in Japanese: speaking, reading, and writing.
