Drew is a strong listener with a passion for problem solving, making him an asset to any municipal or tribal client.


Drew is an associate in the firm’s Municipal, Tribal, and Environmental practice groups. He regularly assists his municipal clients on homelessness, housing, land use appeals, public records requests, public defense contracting, and engaging with tribal governments. For his tribal clients, he focuses on implementing environmental regulations and enforcement. 

Before joining OMW, Drew served in-house with the Lummi Nation covering everything from foster care dependency matters, revising and developing new ordinances and codes, and federal administrative appeals for education funding. This wide breadth of knowledge gives him dynamic flexibility to solve the legal needs of his clients. Drew received a BA in Political Science and Criminal Justice from Gonzaga University and his J.D. from Seattle University School of Law and a L.L.M. from the University of Washington School of Law.

Drew is also passionate about giving back to the community, dedicating Pro Bono time towards Northwest Justice Project's Debt Clinic, KCBA's Records Project, and Kids in Need of Defense (KIND).  When Drew isn't working, Drew and his wife are often found working in their community garden, traveling the country, or cooking. An avid sports fan, Drew can also be found supporting all sports, including most recently trying to learn hockey by watching the Kraken.
