I grew up in small-town Montana. After thirteen years of restaurant work, I was inspired to attend law school. Now, I am a business/litigation/intellectual property attorney in Missoula, Montana and love it! When I’m not lawyering, I love backpacking, hunting, fishing, and football with my wife and our pups.
I represent businesses in all aspects of:
Business Law (Commercial transactions; contracts; corporate law/compliance; mergers & acquisitions; small business law; employment law; startups).
Intellectual Property (Copyright/Trademark/Trade Secret/Unfair Competition/Software; all aspects of procurement, prosecution, enforcement, litigation, licensing, consulting, and contract negotiation).
Litigation (representing plaintiffs and defendants in administrative, state and federal court from trial through appeals in any of the above areas).
