I grew up in and around Fort Atkinson. I went to college and law school in Oklahma and Virginia respectively. I lived in China for a month, and I lived in and around Israel for two weeks.
I had the honor and privilege of studying under Former U.S. Attorney-General John Ashcroft; Sitting Virginia Supreme Court Justice D. Arthur Kelsey; Professors Brad Jacob and James Duane, who had U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Stephen Breyer as law professors; Ben Madison, who writes law school Civil Procedure text books for Carolina Academic Press, a national law school textbook publisher; and Harvard Law School Alumni, James Duane, Natt Gantt, and Caleb N. Griffin. I name all of these people not to namedrop, but to underscore the quality of legal education that I received.
I had to take the Wisconsin Bar Exam because I attended law school out of state. I passed the Bar Exam on my first attempt. Since students at Wisconsin law schools do not have to take the Wisconsin Bar Exam, I accomplished a feat that many Wisconsin lawyers have not accomplished.
The Lord helps me when I struggle. In law school, I needed to complete a very important writing project, and the deadline was only five days away. I was greatly struggling with a finalizing step that I needed to complete to comply with my professor's requirements. I kept praying and reminding God that He is omniscient and omnipotent and therefore could help me. He helped me, and I successfully completed the work that I needed to complete.
I wrote and filed a motion to transfer jurisdiction under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act. I won that motion. I have filed a Motion to Dismiss under the Wisconsin Rules of Civil Procedure.
My hobbies are reading, listening to music, listening to comtary, listening to sports, playing cards, having good comversations, getting to know people, reading, listening to lectures and debates, listening to sermons, and learning interesting information.
