About Me

I am from Minnesota originally and became a Lawyer in 1991. I have practiced Criminal Law nearly exclusively during my legal career. I enjoy working out, fishing, and MMA. At this point in my life I am still a bachelor and have no children. The craziest thing I ever did was fight in the cage at the age of 45.
