I began practicing law in 1979 after graduating from the Arizona State University College of Law. I worked for various federal agencies and departments as an Attorney/Advisor before founding my solo practice in 1984.In addition to my years of trial experience, I have had numerous cases in the 9th Circuit Court. I also hold the highest Martindale-Hubbell rating available, an AV.
I enjoy two aspects of practicing law immensely. First is the ability to help solve problems and simply help people. The second is the immersion in areas and facts that I have not explored before. My practice has required me to explore everything from the effectiveness of fire sprinklers, to the proper compaction of dirt, to braking distances, to the USPSís definition of "a sense of urgency." I believe settlement negotiations should start with the first demand and the first phone call. However, a matter should be treated as if it is going to trial.
