I was born in Ethiopia, and immigrated to the United States. Prior to coming to the U.S., I lived in Nairobi, Kenya for about three years. I attended undergraduate colleges here in Washington State, and graduated with B.A. degrees of: Political Science, Social Sciences, and Minor in History. Then, I attended Seattle University School of Law and graduated with Juris Doctorate (J.D.) in 2002.
My primary practice areas are: Civil litigation, Personal Injury (including Serious injuries), Criminal Law, Employment Discrimination, and Selected Immigration Cases. I care about all my clients and their cases, I work extremely hard to advance my clients' causes and committed to obtaining favorable results.
