About Me

Relocating to Idaho Falls in 1978, it has been my pleasure to serve Idaho clients for over 30 years.

Originally from New Jersey, I also was admitted to the New Jersey Bar and, after law school at Creighton University, Omaha, NE to the Nebraska Bar. I practiced law in both states prior to coming to Idaho.

Commissioned a Army officer after ROTC, I was honorably discharged from the United States Army Reserve after serving and maintain membership in the American Legion.
