I was born in raised in Great Falls, Montana by Warren and Sue Wenz. My father is an attorney still practicing in Great Falls and my mother is since retired. I have a sister, Jennifer, who is a representative for Eli Lily living in Denver, CO.
I graduated high school in 1995 and studied History and Poltiical Science at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. While attending school there I played 3 years of varsity football and was active on campus.
After graduating from college, I attended the University of Montana School of Law. I was elected Student Bar Association Vice President my 3rd year and graduated in 2002. After graduation I took a job with the Flathead county Attorney's Office in Kalispell, MT. During my time at the County Attorney's office I succesfully prosecuted both felony and misdemeanor cases. I conducted trials ranging from simple careless driving tickets, to sexual assaults and methamphetamine production matters. I left the County Attorney's office in 2007 to open my own practice.
Since 2007 my practice has revolved around Criminal Defense, DUI Defense, Personal Injury and some family law. I have successfully defended numerous offenses, including DUI, assaults, TRO Violations and more.
I love living in Kalispell. The scenery is beautiful and there is so much to do! My girlfriend and our 2 dogs love to hike and run. I also love to ski, golf, and enjoy the lake as much as possible.
