Why I Became A MN Bankruptcy Lawyer
I grew up a big city kid with small town values. Originally from Aurora, Colorado, I spent most of my childhood playing sports and being naive about the realities of life. My parents, just like each of my clients, struggled financially. My family experienced a roller coaster of events that took us from financial stability to financial distress. Despite the financial roller coaster my family was on for many years, I quickly learned my parents would do whatever was necessary to make sure my sister and I were cared for. Just like my clients, there were times my parents had to choose between putting food on the table and paying our bills. Ultimately, my sister and I never missed a meal. My parents understood the importance of looking after family first. Little did they realize at the time, but the decisions they made helped me gain a great understanding of the importance of family. Because I have lived through many of the events my clients face, I take great pride in helping our clients get their life back.
For the past five years I have served in the Air Force Reserve. During my time in service I have traveled to many places in support of humanitarian efforts and our missions overseas. People often say “thank you,” but I am truly the one thankful for having the opportunity to serve our country.
One of the added benefits of joining the Air Force was that I met my amazing wife, Tami, while stationed at Fort Lee, Virginia in 2012.
Since graduating law school in 2015, I have worked in both the public and private sector. I have worked for the legal office at Offutt Air Force Base, Douglas County Department of Corrections (Omaha, NE), and Fraser Stryker, PC LLO. Each of these opportunities have provided me with a thorough understanding of the law.
My wife and I moved to Minnesota in September 2016. We are expecting our first child in January 2017.
