My practice involves civil litigation with primary focuses on employment and labor law, personal injury, products liability, medical negligence, insurance law and insurance defense. I represents a broad array of clients ranging from employers, employees, injured individuals and insurance companies.
An associate with the firm, I joined Winston & Cashatt in early 2011.
I grew up in Missoula, Montana, and obtained my bachelors degree in business administration and minor in economics from the University of Montana in 2004. I then obtained my Juris Doctorate degree from Gonzaga School of Law in 2007.
In my personal time, I enjoy volunteering and coaching my sons’ athletic teams, fly-fishing and golfing throughout the Northwest. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and three sons in various outdoor activities such as skiing, biking and camping.
