I am an experienced litigator. Born and raised in Layton, Utah. I attended Weber State University, majoring in Psychology, and then later the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, where I obtained my J.D. In law school I found my passion for litigation and excelled in trial advocacy obtaining the highest grade in trial ad and the CALI award in advanced trial advocacy. In addition, I successfully completed the Litigation Skills Program of Concentrated study, with a criminal emphasis. During my law school, I participated in the criminal clinic winning my first bench trial as a third year law student. I use my love of litigation, my understanding of courtroom decorum, my knowledge of trial advocacy, my attention to detail and commitment to excellence, and most importantly my unique experience and training to ensure that all of my clients, from bankruptcy, to divorce, to criminal law, get the best possible result. I am a father of five and I speak fluent Spanish. I am licensed in Colorado, Nebraska, and Utah. I am a member of National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
