Tacoma became Andrea’s home when she attended Pacific Lutheran University. Andrea has always been driven by a desire to help people solve difficult problems. During her years at PLU she served Tacoma’s community by volunteering with the Diversion Unit at Pierce County Juvenile Court and facilitating a therapeutic group of adolescent domestic violence perpetrators.
Andrea went on to attend law school at the University of Washington. She returned to Tacoma during the summers to intern with the Attorney General’s Office where she worked on a variety of cases related to industrial safety, workers’ compensation, unemployment compensation, and driver’s license suspension. In her final year of law school, Andrea served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Ronald B. Leighton, US District Court for the Western District of Washington.
Andrea is excited to be permanently established in Tacoma where she has a general civil litigation practice working with local businesses and families.
While away from work, Andrea enjoys FaceTiming her nieces and exploring all the outdoor adventures the PNW has to offer. Also, she assists individuals leaving polygamous communities.
