About Me

I was 42 when I got my law degree and I still look forward to coming to work every day and helping our clients. Unlike so many of my colleagues, I have over 25 years of real world experience outside of the practice of law. This breadth of knowledge and experience benefits my clients every day.


 


My four kids are grown, but our three canine buddies keep the house from getting too quiet. That's Max, our American Foxhound mix, in the photo above.


 


When not practicing law I stay active with my hobby, amateur radio. A former deputy sheriff and firefighter while in college, I am actively involved in disaster preparedness and response. Currently I serve as the Section Emergency Coordinator for the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) in the state of Colorado. In that capacity I lead over 700 licensed amateur radio operators who serve their communities during time of need. I am also the State Coordinator and Co-Founder of the Auxiliary Emergency Communications Unit of the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Colorado AuxComm.
