Attorney Profile


My office focuses primarily on  family law issues such as divorce, child custody and support, parentage (paternity), protective orders, termination of parental rights, and adoption matters. I use my experience to advise clients on strategies and likely outcomes, and my proven negotiation and trial skills to advance and protect your best interests.

I graduated from the S. J. Quinney School of Law at the University of Utah in 2010.  While attending law school I earned prestigious awards for my legal writing skills, my efforts in the field of family law and for  leadership of my peers.

Outside of my law practice I am an active member of the United States Army Reserves (including a deployment to Baghdad, Iraq, serving in-country from 2005-2006) and I participate in various Veteran’s Organizations.  Other community involvement includes my long time participation in the Family Law Clinic in Salt Lake City, the Street Law Legal Clinic in Salt Lake City, and as a youth leader in the Boy Scouts of America (from whom I have received my Eagle Scout as a youth).

My intense focus on both family law and community activities has helped me to become an effective family law attorney.  I have opened up my own practice to avoid many of the pitfalls of working for a large firm.  This allows me to focus more on building relationships with my clients, and crafting individualized legal solutions to their unique problems.
