Criminal Defense in the Greater Yellowstone
Protect Your Time, Money & Reputation

Most likely, this all began in an “oh crap” moment. You saw the red flashing lights behind you and pulled over. The officer approached your vehicle and asked you for “Your license and registration, please.” Maybe the next question was “Sir, have you been drinking?”
At this point, the officer is deciding whether to arrest you for DUI.
Attitudes toward marijuana vary across the country. In our neighboring state, Colorado, marijuana is legal. In Wyoming, marijuana is not only illegal, it’s considered a dangerous drug. The laws and expectations here are different.
A criminal charge requires a certain kind of defense attorney. You need someone comfortable with conflict, yet understanding of the situations people find themselves in. I help people charged with:
- Marijuana and drug possession
- Driving offenses (See my DUI page)
- White collar crime

Born to be a lawyer
If you knew me when I was a little kid, you might have told me I’d grow up to be a lawyer.I liked to argue. I read books like it was my job. I had a strong sense of fairness.
But I was stubborn and took the long way. When I graduated from college after studying economics, I taught English in Brazil, worked for a non-profit and then for the Washington State Speaker of the House. Nothing stuck. When I asked my favorite professor for a recommendation to law school, he said, “What took you so long?”
My sense of fairness is more important to me than money. When I finished law school, I took a job as a prosecutor in Grant County, Washington. I tried 24 cases before a jury in a little more than 2 years. I am most proud of winning an award for my work helping victims of domestic violence.
