Listed in Best Lawyers since 2005

I have over 35 years of trial experience in a wide range of areas.  My practice currently is focused on catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, will and trust contests and insurance coverage claims in the Pacific Northwest.  I represent both plaintiffs and defendants, and individuals as well as businesses, and have won or resolved successfully many multimillion dollar cases.

My trial experience includes state and federal cases in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and D.C., including jury trials in 23 Oregon counties, five Washington counties, and several Federal District Courts.  I have briefed and argued cases in the appellate courts for Oregon and Washington, as well as in the Ninth Circuit.  I have also arbitrated cases in a number of forums, both as a litigant and an arbitrator.
