I blog mostly about soccer and legal issues. I graduated from the University of Richmond (1997) with degrees in Political Science, Journalism and Spanish (lapsed, alas).

I later graduated from California Western School of Law (2001) with a J.D., and after a break, have been practicing law in the State of Washington since 2003.

Sounders Practice Notes [03-05-19]

Sounders Media/Match Day

Well, I managed to survive the Sounders Media Match. For those who don’t know anything about my athletic career (and that’s all of you except my family/friends): I stopped playing soccer in 9th grade, at which point I moved over to the American football (like most kids in […]
