My work as an attorney is an outgrowth of my Christian faith. I seek to provide quality representation to individuals - including those with modest incomes. After graduating from Northwest Nazarene College and the University of Idaho College of Law, I worked for Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc. After 10 years with Legal Aid, I worked for four years with the Canyon County Public Defender's Office, took a two year sabbatical to obtain a degree in Christian Studies at Regent College in Vancouver, BC, and then returned to the practice of law - first with a small firm in Caldwell, Idaho and then as a solo practioneer, first in Nampa, Idaho and now in Caldwell, Idaho.

My law school president planted an idea that has remained with me: lawyers are to function like "doctors of society." By pursuing just and fair resolution of disputes, lawyers bring healing. My desire as an attorney is to do just that: seek just resolutions that hopefully also lead to reconciliation between the parties. To this task I bring not only 25 years of experience, but also a listening ear, an attention to detail, and perseverance.
