Occupation Criminal defense lawyer
Location Seattle, Washington, United States
Introduction I have been a lawyer for 35 years. In 1978 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin law school. I started in Chicago with an environmental public interest group, focussing on federal court litigation of environmental and civil rights cases. In 1981 I came to Seattle, and from 1982 through 1990, I was a staff attorney at the Seattle King County Public Defender Association. In my last two years there, I was the training coordinator, teaching new lawyers how to defend. Since 1990 I have been in a solo law practice in Seattle. I have been admitted to practice in Washington, Wisconsin and Illinois. Listed in SeattleMET as one of the best lawyers in 2010. Since 2000, I have been an adjunct professor of criminal trial practice at Seattle University Law School. See my website: for more info, or read blog on the SeattlePI:
