Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I graduated Seattle University School of law and immediately began working at the Pierce County Prosecutor's Office. After two years with the Prosecutor's Office, I joined Durflinger Oliver & Associates where I help those who have been accused of committing crimes. I have handled thousands of cases ranging from domestic violence to DUI's. I have helped hundreds of clients keep or restore their driving privileges by prevailing in administrative hearings with the the Department of Licensing. I have also helped many clients vacate felony and misdemeanor convictions and restore their firearm rights. My previous experience as a prosecutor has given me a unique perspective that has enabled me to negotiate favorable outcomes even in the most difficult cases. In addition to my criminal caseload, I represent clients who have been injured through no fault of their own. I am a tough negotiator and work hard to insure that my clients are fully compensated for their pain and suffering.
