Trials are not for one side or the other to prevail; trials are for the truth to prevail. As an attorney, I pledge to seek for the truth, give sound legal advice, and advocate with the utmost integrity. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 1990 with a BA degree in Japanese and with MBA and JD degrees in 1996. I was admitted to the Utah State Bar in October of 1996 and have practiced law in the private sector since. I am also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court of Utah and the U.S. Court of Appeals, 10th Circuit. I am active in the Construction, Real Property and Dispute Resolution Sections of the Utah State Bar and served for 4 years in the Construction Section leadership. I have been a guest speaker on topics including defective construction claims and defenses in Utah, unforeseen site conditions, the application of the economic loss rule in construction cases, and alternative dispute resolution. I offer services for a variety of legal concerns including litigation services for construction, real estate, contract and other commercial disputes, probate administration and litigation services and fiduciary services. I also provide arbitration and mediation services for expedited and inexpensive resolution of disputes involving these areas of law.
