I am the attorney who will thoroughly explain your legal rights in plain, understandable English.


Having been admitted to the Colorado and California bars in 2004, I have been an advocate for justice for my clients for over 15 years. I am also a licensed real estate agent in Colorado. My roots are rural, raised in the small town of Florence, Colorado.  I know what hard work is; I took care of my parents and had a job from a young age. From this experience, I followed my heart to become an attorney.  I enjoy the detail-oriented nature of working on complicated cases. I consider my character to reflect that I am aggressive, no nonsense, yet humble.  I am honored to be part of this community, and I often give back, volunteering my services through the various non-profit legal associations.

I am a Commissioner on the Colorado Access to Justice Commission through the Colorado Supreme Court.  Additionally, through the Colorado Office of Attorney Regulation, I help fellow attorneys who have violated the rules of professional conduct and assist those attorneys in implementing best practices for their own law firms.
