I am an attorney at Carney Badley Spellman, P.S., a full-service law firm in Seattle, Washington, where I devote most of my practice to construction, real estate and civil litigation in many industries.
I draft contracts and provide risk management advice to companies involved in development, design, construction, and sale of buildings and real estate. I litigate civil disputes including complex multi-party litigation, construction defect, work site injuries, products liability, automobile, premises, and personal injury claims.
Since 2003, I have represented numerous Washington real estate developers and contractors in disputes related to tower, commercial, condominium, apartment, conversion, and single-family construction. I have handled matters through mediation, jury trials, and appeals.
I have also worked as a land use hearing examiner. Before earning my J.D., I worked at a mechanical and electrical engineering firm in Seattle.
