Effective lawyers solve their clients’ legal issues in a cost-efficient and straight-forward manner. I combine my knowledge of the law, creative problem-solving, and diligence to pursue the most successful strategies to protect my clients’ real estate and business interests.
My practice focuses on real estate, general business, and finance/banking. Whether I’m working on a transaction or a lawsuit, I love helping my clients through difficult and challenging times, and providing efficient, straight-forward legal advice they can trust.
My real estate practice includes negotiating and drafting leases and purchase and sale agreements for commercial and residential real properties. I also draft, review, and negotiate easement agreements, boundary line agreements, and various documents for homeowner and condominium associations, including covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs), bylaws, and rules and regulations. I enjoy working through title insurance issues and solving boundary line disputes. I have represented clients in numerous lawsuits involving real estate matters, and I have successfully settled all of those cases pre-trial. My favorite part of my real estate practice is helping clients purchase real property, from the moment they make an offer, until they get the keys at closing.
My general business practice includes forming and maintaining limited liability companies and corporations. I also draft, review, and negotiate LLC operating agreements, shareholder agreements, employment agreements, and other corporate documents. I especially enjoy drafting and handling stock sales and helping business owners work through ownership changes. I’d love to help your business with its legal needs.
My finance and banking practice includes drafting, reviewing, and interpreting loan documents and commercial loan modifications, as well as handling collections. I typically represent community banks and other lenders in these matters.
I love college football – ROLL TIDE ROLL. When it’s not football season, I enjoy swimming, baking, and spending time in Vancouver, B.C.
I’m also a member of The Washington State Bar Association, The King County Bar Association, and The East King County Bar Association.
