About me

I served the public and the legal profession at the Wyoming Supreme Court, as a Law Clerk to two Justices, and thereafter as an Advocate.  It has been my professional privilege to argue 21 cases before the Court.  As a result, the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers invited me to join as Wyoming's first member.
