Meet the Team
My clients are good people. Whether they have been injured, or accused of a crime, I like who I represent. I am proud of what I am able to do for them. And I am proud of the results my team delivers. So for me, I like my work. I’ve always had a strong sense of fairness. When I was a kid, I liked to argue. I read books like it was my job. I’m stubborn. Naturally, I became a lawyer. When I graduated from the University of Washington law school, I wanted to try cases more than I wanted to make money. I became a prosecutor for a county in rural Washington. In 2 years, I tried 25 cases to a jury. While I loved the work I was doing on behalf of victims, I also realized that cops weren’t always right, that laws were not always fair, and that there was more to the law (and life) than prosecution. I moved to Wyoming and soon opened my practice.
What else? I’m 38 years old, married, and have two children at home. The best cases are interesting. Give me a case that takes a little bit of creativity and hard work. Something with a righteous angle. If you have something that fits the bill, please get in touch.
Here are some of the ways, I’ve made a difference for my clients.
