A native Coloradan, I was born and raised in Boulder. In 2001, I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado receiving a B.S. in History. I have served the U.S. as a systems program manager for over 15 years. Presently, I am a Lt. Colonel in the United States Air Force Reserve, stationed at Peterson AFB, CO.
I graduated Law School from Marquette University in 2009, was awarded my Juris Doctorate, and was admitted to the Wisonsin and Colorado Bars that year. While at Marquette I was inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu (Jesuit Honor Society) and the Marquette Pro Bono Society. Additionally, I interned for the Wisconsin Supreme Court-Justice Patience Roggensack.
In 2010, I accepted a position as a Deptuty District Attorney in the 9th Judicial District and prosecuted misdemeanor and felony level crimes. Since August 2012, I have been practicing predominantly Family Law. However, I have also practiced criminal defense, as a deputy municipal prosecutor, and as court appointed counsel for Dependency and Neglect and contempt defense.
As a child of divorce, an Air Force officer, family man, and a driven attorney, I believe that my personal and professional experiences aid me in relating to clients. Moreover, I feel this makes me distinctively qualified in the practice of family law. I am very aware of the effects this process has on the family; most notably, children. I am keenly alert that the effects of divorce are prevalent long after the formal ending of a relationship. I will make it a point to keep my clients focused on their children and how their actions today will impact their children’s tomorrows. If possible, I believe that my primary goal is to aid in an amicable resolution outside the courtroom. Yet, there are situations where there is no other option than to resolve issues in court. Should that be the case, my extensive trial and litigation experience has prepared me to represent my clients in a courtroom setting.
I have every hope that I can continue to spend time in our community promoting family law issues, community advocacy and restorative justice. I enjoy the outdoors and all that Colorado has to offer. Mostly, I am glad to be home and to have the ability to serve the Front Range.
