Paul is a Montana native who was raised in the Flathead Valley. He attended college at the University of Montana in Missoula and then travelled to the East Coat for Law School. The opportunity of attending the ivy league University of Pennsylvania School of Law was enough to keep him in Philadelphia for 3 years, but he caught the first plane home to open his own practice in his hometown of Bigfork. Two years later he joined Measure, Sampsel, Sullivan & O'Brien where he continues to practice. He lives in Bigfork with his wife and two dogs.

Every time I work with Paul I'm impressed with his hard work and advocacy for his clients. He takes the time to make sure they understand what's going on every step of the way and really involves them in their case. That, coupled with excellent legal skills makes him a lawyer I'm proud to recommend.
