Principal & Attorney at law
Rafael grew up in Sequim, Washington. After graduating from the University of Washington, he attended Wake Forest Law School with a focus in trial law. Rafael’s mission is to help the injured on the Olympic Peninsula and beyond.
After law school, Rafael served as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Jefferson County, Washington. Rafael fought hard for every victim and took over 75 cases to trial.
Rafael’s passion for protecting victims and their rights at the prosecutor’s office attracted him to personal injury and insurance law – where he focuses on car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slips and falls, dog bites, wrongful death cases, and insurance bad faith claims.
Rafael is committed to helping and protecting the community. He twice served as the president of the Jefferson County Bar Association. He currently sits on the board for Clallam-Jefferson Pro Bono Attorneys Organization and has served as the president for this organization. He is also active in the Washington State Association of Justice organization and is a proud member of the Port Townsend Film Festival board.
Rafael is dedicated to bringing justice to clients and protecting our Olympic Peninsula community.
Eva grew up in Port Townsend, Washington. After graduating from Smith College, she moved from Louisiana to North Carolina to Tanzania, attending school and working for non-profit organizations. Eva’s time working at an innocence project, helping wrongfully incarcerated inmates apply for free legal assistance, motivated her to find ways to help people as they navigate complex and often overwhelming legal systems.
Eva is grateful to be living and working on the Olympic Peninsula again. Eva’s favorite part of her job is working directly with clients. She seeks to make clients lives easier so that they can focus on what is most important, their recovery.
