Dennis F. Principe

Dennis Principe was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio.  By the age of ten he was telling his parents that one day he would live in Alaska.  It took him another 14 years, but he did get to Nome in 1974 to volunteer as a disc jockey and news reporter for radion station KNOM.  He was greeted by a Bering Sea storm that devastated the town.  The Associated Press received their information from his teletype reports, and awarded the station an honorable mention for coverage of the storm.  He also was under the burled arches, microphone in hand, while covering the third Iditarod. 

 Dennis left Alaska for a few years in the Seattle area, during which he was named the youngest insurance claims manager in the history of his employer.  He worked his way through law school at night while managing a regional claims office in Seattle.  He began his law practice with an insurance defense firm in Seattle. 

 Alaska had woven its spell and Mr. Principe returned to the state in 1988.  He has been practicing in the Mat-Su Valley at Palmer and Wasilla.  Past president of the Mat-Su Bar Association, he is active in his community.  While in the Valley he served on several boards, chairing the board of the Mat-Su Recovery Center for 3 years. 

 Mr. Principe returned from sabbatical in China in June 2006.  Having had the good fortune to try a case in Kodiak prior to leaving for China, he decided to move his practice to Alaska’s “Emerald Island”. 

 During the year he was in China, he taught English to young businessmen and women.  Kodiak’s newest attorney has the travel bug, and speaks a fair amount of Italian and Mandarin in addition to claiming mastery of Australian.

 Mr. Principe will service the general legal needs of his business and individual clients, providing counsel and representation at trial.
