My Escape from the
Trailer Park In Pursuit
of the American Dream
Growing up poor in Hillsboro, we didn’t know any lawyers. My inspiration to practice law came from TV reruns and movies. I watched street-smart attorneys fight for underdogs, regardless of their ability to pay. Read about my passion.
In 2017 I was ranked among the top 2.5% of my peers by Super Lawyers magazine. My Martindale-Hubbell AV rating is Preeminent. I’m the Oregon State Bar consumer section past chair, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association consumer section past chair, and National Association of Consumer Advocates Oregon Chapter past chair.
Pro Bono Oregon Lawyer
The day I passed the bar was the best day in my life. I was held back in the first grade and expelled from middle school. Read my old report card. I come from humble beginnings, was raised in a trailer park by a single mom, and am the first in my family to attend college. Now I dedicate about 20% of my practice to pro bono.
