About me

I grew up in the Salt Lake City area.  I attended the University of Utah for my undergraduate studies.  I recieved Bachelors degrees in Sociology and Political Science, as well as a Minor in Criminology.  After graduation I took a year off to Ski and Fish before I moved to Spokane Washington to attend Gonzaga University School of Law.


 


While attending Law School at Gonzaga I participated in many extra curricular activities including: 2003-2004 Honor Council, Gullispie Cup appellat competition, Negotiaon and Mock Trial competitions, inturmuiral athletic competitons.


 


I graduated cum Laude from Gonzaga University School of Law in the spring of 2005.  Subsequently I passed the Washington State Bar in July of 2005.  I then moved back to Utah where i began interning at the law firm of Seal and Kennedy.  I took and passed the Utah State Bar in February of 2006.  I then was then given the position of associate attorney with Seal & Kennedy.  I have been activly practicing law in Utah since becomming licensed in April of 2006.  In July of 2007 I passed the Wyoming State Bar. 


 


My multiple licenses helps me deal with issues that arise from my many connections I have made in Washington, Utah, and Wyoming.  I am activly practicing law in Utah and Wyoming.
