  • If I wasn't practicing law...

    I would probably be helping out with the family business (lumber) and spending as much time as possible with my two sons.

  • People would be surprised to know...

    Before attending law school I worked as a child protective services social worker.

  • What do you like to do outside of work?

    After sitting much of the day, I want to get moving. My two busy sons keep me active on a daily basis. We enjoy tennis, fishing, waterskiing, and snow skiing. I’m also a voracious reader and look forward to quiet times that allow me to dive into the latest book.

  • Tell us an important life lesson you live by.

    I believe it’s important to possess a strong work ethic and I try to instill that value in my sons, just as my parents did with me. In addition, each day is an opportunity to be kind and respectful to others.
