Do you need equine legal services?  Start by talking to someone who owns horses and understands the industry. For 25 years I have owned, trained, and shown horses myself. Today I am growing a practice in Equine and Animal Law to give back to an industry I love. I care about helping people, horses, and equine facilities in my local equine communities through long-term relationships, compassion, and by providing affordable legal services.

Some of my services include equine small business counseling, contract review and drafting (including leases & boarding agreements), liability release review and drafting. purchase & sale disputes, agister liens, possession/ownership/registration disputes, tort and premise liability, breeding and sire disputes, and other equine-related litigation.

Serving all of Washington, with an emphasis in Pierce, King, and Thurston Counties.  A discount is offered to 4-H members!

I would love to set up a FREE consultation to discuss how I can help you with your equine legal needs!  I can even travel to you depending on your location!

Education and/or Accreditation

Born and raised in Covington, Washington, I earned my B.A. from the University of Washington and my J.D. from South Texas College of Law in the heart of Houston, TX. During law school, I was active in advocacy, including mock trial, moot court, mediation, and arbitration. I also served as Vice Chair of the prestigious Board of Advocates, a student organization responsible for the No. 1 Advocacy program in the country.

I have been licensed for 5 years in the State of Washington to practice law. I am also admitted to practice in the Western and Eastern District courts (i.e. Federal Bankruptcy and Appellate Courts). I am also an executive board member of the Washington State Bar Association ("WSBA") Animal Law Section.

In addition to Equine Law, my other main practice area is Bankruptcy Law (Chapter 7 & 13) so I can help people who need a fresh start. I also have experience with real estate, property law, foreclosure, and foreclosure avoidance (including "Foreclosure Fairness Act" meditations), post-foreclosure, title curative, collections, HOA/COA, breach of contract and contract disputes, and litigation.

This diverse experience allows me to better assist my clients with a variety of related concerns, which is necessary to fully service my diverse equine client needs. You will receive legal representation that is effective, efficient, and at a fair cost to you.

Special Interests

Naturally, horses are my biggest passion and have defined me as a person. My passion for horses was evident, perhaps before I could even walk. It all truly started at the age of 8 with a kind but spunky, incredibly stubborn, blue-eyed Welsh/POA pony with a flaxen mane. She taught me so much and I miss her every day.

Today I have 2 quarter horses. A 13-year-old mare who I have owned since she was 10 months old. We mainly trail ride since I was focusing on developing my career during her prime years, but did do some western and english performance shows. I also have a 3-year-old gelding, who is my project reining horse. They are both members of our family. My husband and I also have 2 cats and a rottweiler.

I participated in the King County 4-H program for 11 years, held numerous officer positions, taught riding lessons, and schooled horses for people for about 10 years until some time during college. In 4-H I had many accomplishments including multiple supreme medal awards in nearly every discipline. I also qualified for the King County State team 6 consecutive years and accomplished multiple Championships, Reserve Championships, and other top placements at the County, State Western Washington, and State Finals levels.

In addition to my 4-H years, I have also done open performance and AQHA competitions, as well as lower level dressage. I believe dressage training is an excellent foundation for any discipline. Also, for approximately 10 years I did hunter jumping shows and consistently did well against the talented hunters on my stocky 15hh quarter horse. I am now embarking on a new discipline, reining and I am having so much fun! Nevertheless, there is nothing better than a relaxing trail ride!

I have always been passionate about maintaining an active role in the training process because feeling progress due to your own hard work and dedication is the most rewarding accomplishment. Horses are amazing, kind-natured animals with incredible intelligence and athleticism. Just being in a horse's presence is good for the soul. Every horse teaches us something if we listen.

I will approach your equine legal matter with this same passion.
