I focus my law practice exclusively on defending driving-related criminal charges as well as navigating the collateral licensing issues that are often associated with those charges. To this end, a large portion of my practice is devoted to Department of Licensing administrative hearings (“Implied Consent” hearings), where I have argued over 500 hearings, successfully obtained over 100 dismissals, and prevailed on dozens of appeals in Superior Court (including several commercial licensing cases). Beyond criminal and administrative litigation, I have also worked with the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL) to draft statutory amendments and law changes relating to DUI licensing issues. In 2019, I testified in front of the state senate in support of these positive legislative changes, which simplify many aspects of the licensing process for drivers convicted of DUI-related offenses. Additionally, I was selected by the Washington Foundation for Criminal Justice (WFCJ) as a presenter on licensing topics at the statewide DUI Defense Seminar in both 2019 and 2020. I continue to work closely with the statewide defense community to assist drivers in this complex and often overwhelming area of law. As a result of my work in both the local and statewide criminal defense community, I was awarded the “Rising Star” award by the Clark County Bar Association in 2020.
