About me

I enjoy the practice of law. I have extensive experience in Social Security, Civil Litiagation and Criminal Defense. As a former prosecutor I understand the intricatices of the law and what prosecutors hope to accomplish. 


I graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU) with my Bachelors and received my Juris Doctor from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. I worked as the Layton City Attorney for a number of years where I became deeply involved in the process of entitlements and land use. After I left Layton City, I opened my own law practice where I delved into the private side of land use and development, further developing the skills and contacts I made during my time working for government. Now I am involved in a highly specialized real estate and land use practice where I focuses on large transactions, including the development of ski resorts, large Planned Unit Developments (PUDs), and general land entitlement
