He thinks of himself as a utility player. He represents a wide range of clients, from dog groomers to people who can build a high performance aircraft, and from people buying their first home to professional real estate developers looking to build out an entire subdivision. He works diligently to be available to clients whenever he’s needed, and makes time for client emergencies as if they were his own, because they are. He started out as a litigator (IRS 10 years). He now applies what he learned in court to making better deals, hoping they never need to be in court.
He serves with several nonprofit organizations, including Central Oregon Locavore. When he gets time to play, he’s on a bike or a rock ledge.
She has become more of a specialist. She also represents a broad mixture of clients, from airports to private developers to governmental entities’ special projects.

She has solved problems with commercial real estate issues in Boston, beachfront condos on the Oregon Coast, and resorts on the High Desert. She currently serves on the Oregon State Bar Disciplinary Board as appointed by the Oregon Supreme Court. Her free time is usually spent in her organic, non-GMO vegetable garden, which grows every year.
