I am proud to be a trial lawyer who is passionate about helping injured people. My practice focuses on representing individuals who have suffered injuries from motor vehicle collisions, and who have been victimized or abused by the insurance industry system . Being a fluent bilingual speaker, I also represent Korean small business owners in civil disputes and litigation matters.
I have been practicing law since 2002, serving clients in King, Pierce, Kitsap, Snohomish, and Thurston Counties. Prior to my legal career, I was a tax consultant, receiving an LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Washington School ofLaw. I received my J.D. from the Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, in New York City, after receiving my B.A. in Economics and Urban Studies from Vassar College. I am admitted to practice in the State of Washington, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, and U.S. Tax Court. I was voted as a Rising Star by Washington Law and Politics in 2005 and 2006. I am an Eagle member of the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association,and a Section member of the American Association for Justice. My personal life and work life tend to blend together, but whenever I can, I cherish spending time with my beautiful wife Cristine, little guy Alex, and furry princess Joon.
