Every day I get to come to an office and work with great people doing what I love to do. My professional life has been very satisfying, but it hasn’t been everything. I’m married to a remarkable woman (40 years as of 2019), with six children and nineteen grandchildren. I garden with conifers, perennials, fruit and vegetables. I have volunteered at my church and in the BSA. My time as a member of the Kennewick City Planning Commission including a term as its chairman taught me much about development of real estate in my city of residence. I’ve worked with wonderful clients in varied matters but those involving real estate have been my passion. Serving for three years on the Disciplinary Board of the Washington State Bar Association allowed me to learn from wise fellow lawyers and citizen members who were examples of outstanding public servants. I am grateful to live in the Northwest and the Tri-Cities. I believe in the mission of Gravis Law and I look forward to helping my clients in current and new matters and in transition to my colleagues here as I prepare for retirement.
