Summary

Founder of Barrister Law Group and successful litigation attorney, whose 30 year career includes positions as private practitioner, corporate counsel, state and county government official, and military lawyer.
Leaving college in 1984, I embarked on a 28 year career with United States Army, as a young private, rising to the rank of Sergeant before being selected for and obtaining a commission as 2nd Lieutenant. I attended law school and reentered active duty as a Judge Advocate. As a lawyer on active duty, the Army Reserve, and in the private sector, I was honored to work with the best in some of the most interesting, challenging, and unique positions.
My legal career began as a prosecutor in the JAG Corps; I was immediately drawn to the court room. Among peers and clients I worked hard to be an exceptional trial attorney, representing clients aggressively with compassion, integrity, and honesty. I achieved those ambitions, winning far more than I lost, even as defense counsel.
After calling the army "home" for 10 years I left active duty in 1997, eager to test my legal skills in the private sector. Over the next 12 years I served as counsel in Fortune 500 companies and an associate in the private sector. My litigation practice expanded to include representation of clients before a variety of courts and tribunals and with hard work and great supporting staff I was fortunate in my success.
I reentered active duty in 2009, completing three tours in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. I took off my uniform off for the last time in 2012 choosing southern Arizona for the warmth, values, and rich diversity, along with the friendliness, of Arizonians. I continue my public service as prosecuting attorney for the City of Tombstone, along with private practice in family law, civil litigation, and criminal defense.
"Barrister" Law Group, is so-named because of our skills in advocacy and litigation - hallmarks of the old world barrister.
