About Me

I started practicing law in Utah County in 1994. During my career, I've been able to help thousands of clients. This gives me a great deal of satisfaction. While I make a living practicing law, I get satisfaction in helping my clients. It's always fun to run into an old client at the grocery store or at a ball game and catch up.


 


When I'm not practicing law, I love to write. I'm a member of the Utah Valley Writer's guild and attend their meetings regularly. I'm working on a middle grade novel. I don't know if I'll ever publish it but I'm enjoying working on it after hours.


 


Another hobby is traveling. I've visited 47 states and more than a dozen foreign countries. I lived in France for two years.


 


A sometimes hobby is radio controlled airplanes.


 


I'm blessed with a wonderful wife and four terrific children.
