About Me

I knew I wanted to be a lawyer since I was in grade school.  All I really knew about lawyers back then, though, was what I saw on L.A. Law.  When I entered college at St. Olaf, a liberal arts school, I did so with an open mind.  If another discipline piqued my interest more than law, I would pursue that.  Nothing ever did.  My constitiutional law classes in college cemented my decision to go to law school.


It was in law school at William Mitchell that I first became aware of family law.  It never occured to me that there was so much law - and so many rules - that applied to people going through a divorce.  Clerking for a Judge right out of law school, I saw first hand how much of an impact the lawyering can have on the results of family law cases.  That inspired me to pursue a career helping people in family law.


Outside of the office, I am a sports nut.  I curl in the winter (think rocks on ice) and I play softball in the summer months.   I am also a music lover.  I enjoy classic rock (especially Lynyrd Skynyrd - I've been to 20 concerts or so) and I play trombone in my church's brass choir.  I also enjoy traveling with my wife and two sons.
