Practice Areas

  • Family Law


I am a Montana native and attended West High School in Billings, Montana where I grew up.  In 1993, I graduated with honors from the University of Montana with a political science degree.  Following college, I joined VISTA (now known as Americorps) and assisted in developing and operating a literacy program in Montgomery, Alabama.  I attended the University of Montana Law School from 1997 - 2000 and graduated with honors. 

Prior to beginning my own family law practice in Helena in 2002, I clerked for District Court Judge Russell Fagg in Bilings and then Justice William Leaphart at the Montana Supreme Court.  In 2003, I moved to Missoula to work at a local law firm, and I then opened my current family law practice in 2007.  Since 2007, I have provided family law legal services to those in need in the Missoula and surrounding areas.
