I grew up on a struggling family farm and ranch. I'm a former law enforcement officer who specialized in Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases but also worked drug investigations and responded to all call types. I decided to leave law enforcement and completed by B.S. in Public Safety from Capella University. I then completed a J.D. (law degree) from Concordia University School of Law and promptly passed the Idaho Bar. I have been practicing Criminal Law since law school, a natural progression from my time in law enforcement. After joining the Idaho State Bar, I have focused on Criminal Defense. My clients are regular people who want legal help they can trust from an attorney who fully understands the criminal justice system. I prefer to treat my clients as I treat family.
