Winning your case is more than just the law
Trials and Motions are more than just recitations of the law, they involve telling your story in a way that hooks the person deciding your case so that they will want to decide in your favor.
Modern Communication is also about understanding the way people perceive, and understanding how the technology and its tools can assist in communication.
Settlement is usually more than one party overpowering the other, often there is a win-win for both parties, something that is all too often over-looked.
I can help you tell your story better
In addition to my training and experience as a Lawyer and in the legal field, I have been extensively trained as a story-teller, and hold a Master of Fine Arts Degree (MFA) in Screenwriting from the American Film Institute (Conservatory established by the American Motion Picture Academy), and taken many supplementary classes. I have studied closely with such writers as Leonardo Berkocovici, Mark Harris, Lew Hunter, Alfred Levitt, Frank Pierson, Mead Roberts, John Shaner, Eugene Vale, and others. I have honed this experience through my many years of work as a reporter and video and television producer.
With this experience I can help you tell your story so that is much more compelling.
I can make what you're telling look better
In addition to my training at AFI I received training in video production at California Institute of the Arts (a college established by the Walt Disney Studios) and hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Institution. I have decades of production experience and have produced literally hundreds of hours of locally produced television in the Northwest. My work has shown at festivals and museums around the world, as well as national networks including the Independent Film Channel, and Free Speech TV. I have taught video production at a college level including Shoreline Community College and Henry Cogswell College. I have served on the Board of the Seattle Cable Access Network television for four years.
My years of video experience combined with my other experience and training make me uniquely qualified to help you put together dynamic presentations.
I can help you get where you want to go more quickly.
We all know that most cases take too long to settle, costing far too much in time and money. I have been extensively trained in Alternative Dispute Resolution, hold a Certificate from University of Washington Law School , and have done Clinical Work in the field, including at Seattle Municipal Court. Additionally I have training in psychology including Graduate Work at the New School for Social Research.
My training and experience allows me to think outside the box and come up with solutions others miss. I can help you solve your problem more easily.
