INDUSTRIES & PRACTICES
Making a difference is my practice.
With decades of experience earned practicing law around the world, Darrin has returned to private practice in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Darrin assists small business owners, individuals and home associations with legal matters concerning real estate, construction and collection.
With a law degree from the University of Washington, Darrin's practice focuses on general business-corporate law, real estate, construction, and contracts. His practice actively involves all aspects of civil litigation with an emphasis on the construction industry, from business formation, drafting and negotiating of contract language, licensing issues, consultation during construction and through dispute resolution. When necessary, Darrin works with his clients to protect their rights in the trial courts of Oregon and Washington State and Federal District Court.
Darrin has worked both stateside and internationally. He offers broad exposure, having represented various legal matters and clients from citizens of Bangladesh and China to multi-national corporations. Darrin has practiced in Saipan, a United States Territory in the Northern Pacific, as well as throughout the Pacific Northwest.
A native of the scenic Pacific Northwest, Darrin is an avid swimmer, cross country skier and runner, often found in the early morning hours pushing a double stroller as part of his training for his next marathon.
Darrin's private practice utilizes his business and legal experience in partnership with small businesses, individuals and owner associations to achieve their goals and objectives.
With the CRC dead (for now), you knew that it wouldn’t be long until another bridge proposal came up. With Clark County Commissioner David Madore leading the way, Clark County residents are being called on yet again to give an advisory vote on whether they would like a third bridge built. The kicker – the question will be phrased “not do you want a bridge built” but “do you want a bridge without a toll built.” A free bridge? Why would anyone say no to that – anything to relieve the traffic on I-205 and I-5. Don’t let the “no toll” language fool you though as per the Columbian, FIGG Engineering Group,
EAST COUNTY BRIDGE
the company behind the proposal being discussed, “has floated the possibility of adding tolls to the bridge as a way of financing it.”
Madore provides little detail, but makes lots of promises, including that the bridge could be completed in 5 years – representations questioned by the Vancouver City Council.
More and better bridges are needed, but the merit of this proposal cannot be determined until more detail is forthcoming.
