I was born and raised in Tri-Cities where I graduated from Kennewick High School. I left Kennewick for the University of Idaho double majoring in Psychology and Sociology. After earning my diplomas I attended the University of Idaho College of Law, graduating in the top 1/3 of my class. During my time in law school I interned for the Kennewick City Attorney's Office performing the duties of an Assistant City Attorney. While interning I received several favorable jury verdicts on behalf of the City.
After passing the bar exam I accepted a position as an associate attorney at Bell, Brown, & Rio. I represent multiple local municipalities in Benton County District Court and Pasco Municipal Court. My courtroom experience rivals that of attorneys that have practiced law for years. I offer a variety of legal services to the public including representing Plaintiff's interests in personal injury cases as well as representing landlords in disputes over their rental properties.
