Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

A native Coloradan, I was born and raised in Boulder where I attended Fairview High School. In 2001, I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in History. My first assignment was at Vance Air Force Base in Enid Oklahoma. While there, I attended flight school; and, through a twist of fate, I found myself working in the Judge Advocate Office as a Legal Assistance Clerk. I immediately fell in love with the law, especially the human interaction aspects. In 2003 I moved to the Boston Massachusetts area to work for the Air Force as a Systems Program Manager. While in Boston, I started law school at the New England School of law (NESL). During my second year at NESL I was transferred by the Air Force to Milwaukee to work as the Operations Commander for the mid-west recruiting squadron. I then transferred to Marquette School of Law where I obtained my Juris Doctorate and graduated with Alpha Sigma Nu honors (Jesuit Honor Society).

As a child of divorce, an Air Force officer, family man, and a driven attorney, I believe that my personal and professional experiences aid me in relating to clients. Moreover, I feel this makes me distinctively qualified in the practice of family law. I am very aware of the effects this process has on the family; most notably, children. I am keenly alert that the effects of divorce are prevalent long after the formal ending of a marriage. I will make it a point to keep my clients focused on their children and how their actions today will impact their children’s tomorrows. If possible, I believe that my primary goal is to aid in an amicable resolution outside the courtroom.

I have every hope that I can continue to spend time in our community promoting family law issues, community advocacy and restorative justice. I enjoy the outdoors and all that Colorado has to offer. Mostly, I am glad to be home and to have the ability to serve the western slope.
