Attorney Profile & Resources

I received my law degree from Santa Clara University. I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from California Polytechnic State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of California, Davis. Before becoming an attorney, I worked as a vocational rehabilitation counselor, mental health counselor, and as an insurance claims adjuster handling workers’ compensation claims. My education and background help me better understand and assist my clients.

My offices are conveniently located in SE Portland, at the corner of E Burnside and SE 14th. There is easy handicapped access, ample free parking, and the office is on or near several major bus lines (Lines #6, 12, 19, 20 and 70).

Social Security benefits can be very confusing. Please feel free to call me at (503) 236-0068 with any questions you may have regarding Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income. I will be happy to speak with you personally, and will attempt to answer your questions clearly and simply.

There is no fee for this consultation, or for any work I do on your behalf, unless I am successful in obtaining benefits for you.
