About me

After graduating cum laude from the University of Minnesota in 1999, I spent a year clerking for a judge in Wisconsin before moving to Whatcom County in the summer of 2000.  Before coming to the Elder Law Offices of Barry M. Meyers, I was in-house counsel for the Lummi Nation with my practice focusing on human resource issues, governmental administration and criminal prosecution.  When I am away from work, I spend a lot of time riding and racing bicycles with my amzaing wife Hannah.  When we are not riding and racing, we volunteer our time to local cycling events and advocacy groups.
