I’m here to help you win in Seattle and the rest of western Washington. Today, I live and work in Seattle, not far from where I grew up: I’m from here. But I received my legal education and training out east: Harvard Law School (where I was on the Law Review), followed by a federal appellate clerkship in Boston, then six years of practice as a litigator in New York.
