Providing services in Election Law to protect democracy

Candidates, Ballots, PAC’s, Tribes

The right to vote and the right to fair elections are important to the furtherance of democracy. Throughout my career, I have participated in various capacities on various campaigns. This includes statewide ballot measures in Oregon and California. It also includes campaigns for candidates in state and local races. I have done everything from knocking on doors to raising funds to serving as Treasurer.

Further, I was the lead attorney on election issues at the North Slope Borough. I advised the Clerk’s office on navigating state and local law. I also assisted the Borough in redistricting its legislative body.

I offer a number of different services for candidates for political office.  I can provide services to non-profits seeking to propose ballot measures, defend ballot measures or challenge ballot measures. I also work with municipalities, Tribes and Tribal organizations who are special counsel on specific election issues.

Do you have a specific need that’s not mentioned on the website? Contact me today.
