About me

I was born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona before I moved to Washington, D.C. to go to college and law school.  After being sworn into the Maryland Bar in 1997, I returned to Arizona in late 1998 and was sworn into the Arizona Bar in 1999.  I began my Arizona practice in Flagstaff at Mangum Wall for 6 years before moving to Phoenix in 2005 to join Gust Rosenfeld.  After 5 years in Phoenix, I have returned to Flagstaff to raise my daughter where I grew up while establishing a real estate and business law practice throughout Northern Arizona and in the Valley.
