I believe that every client, no matter how big or small their legal issue may be, deserves to be respected and treated with care. I am originally from a town of appoximately 4,000 people in Northern Idaho. I was educated at Carroll College in Helena, Montana and then I obtained my law degree from the University of North Dakota School of Law. After19 years in the legal field, I have had the opportunity to help clients from all walks of life with many diverse and interesting issues. I have spent enough time in the Courtroom to find out I love being there to obtain justice for my clients. I also know how to mediate tough disputes that are better resolved outside of the Courtroom. In 2011 I was able to enhance my legal skills when I attended and graduated from the Trial Lawyer's College.
I reside in Conrad, Montana which is an agriculture based community. I have three children and spend my free time kayaking, cross-country skiing, reading or with my kids and our three dogs.
