One of the newest members of our Paralegal team, Stuart grew up in upstate New York in a town that’s as hard to spell as it is to say: Schenectady. His background is both interesting and varied – for many years, he worked as a multi-instrumentalist, professional recording musician before he found his way to the legal world. His legal background is extensive, having worked as a paralegal, and a legal assistant specializing in loan work. An inveterate world traveler, he’s lived overseas, as well as in California and New York. Portland’s many natural spectacles brought him to the Pacific Northwest where he enjoys backpacking, fitness, hiking and martial arts.
