Beth did not always know she was going to be a lawyer.

After graduating from University of California at Santa Cruz, she spent a year teaching English in Japan. When she returned, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. Many people over the years had recommended she consider a career in law, and she had always wanted to fight for the little guy. This seemed a good way to do it.

Five days later, she took the LSAT. The rest is history. 

Beth graduated first in her class at University of Maryland School of Law in 1990. After law school, she clerked for two appellate judges (one state, one federal) before joining a Washington, D.C. firm with a national practice in both civil and criminal law. 

In 1994, Beth transitioned from the big city life when she took a job with the Federal Defenders Office in Spokane. She transitioned into private practice with legendary Spokane trial lawyer Mary Schultz before starting her own practice in 1998.  

Since then, Beth has consulted for lawyers across the country in complex litigation matters. 

Working with plaintiffs is a fantastic way of ensuring that she is able to help clients who otherwise may not be getting a fair shake, and she feels honored when she’s able to help clients reach their decisions and help them on the path to those ends.

At the end of the day, Beth’s overall goal is to help clients navigate the world of law in a way that is less scary for them and more understandable.

Beth always makes sure each “i” is dotted and each “t” is crossed in her work – and this includes helping her clients in a holistic way.

Beth’s former clients from many cases have called her years later, thanking her for changing their lives. Hearing that her fight for certain outcomes kept her clients’ lives from being negatively impacted forever inspires her to continue to fight for her clients every time.

In addition to being a lawyer, Beth is also a writer. She wrote a novel about the 1946 Spokane Indians’ minor league team that died in a bus crash midway through that season, told as if their spirits lived on. As a story consultant on the 2022 film The Man From Rome, she was able to go to Spain for much of the filming. 

She also played competitive soccer in college.  

Beth feels blessed to work with lawyers who care and who want to make a difference – and who care about the quality of work that they do on the road to making that difference.
