The Attorney Who Gets Things Done

I am a trial lawyer who has practiced law in Grand Junction and Western Colorado for more than 36 years. I graduated from Northwestern School of Law, Lewis and Clark College in 1987, and began practicing in Grand Junction in 1988.

I have been practicing continuously since then and have substantial experience in the courtroom. I have earned a reputation of quality and effective legal work. I take pride in providing personal attention to each of my cases, protecting the rights of my clients, and successfully navigating my cases to a proper resolution. 

As a long time resident of the Grand Valley, I am an active participant in the community. I am a past President of the Grand Junction Downtown Lion’s Club. I have also served as President of the Mesa County Pro Bono Project, and have assisted in area youth sports.

When I’m not practicing law, I enjoys spending time in the outdoors of Western Colorado. I’m handy with a fly rod, enjoy hunting and love to ski.
