I grew up in Isabel, South Dakota. My dad is truck driver; my mom is a school nurse. After completing law school, I completed a one-year clerkship with the Sixth Judicial Circuit of South Dakota in Pierre. Since then, I have engaged in private practice, focusing almost exclusively on civil litigation. I enjoy helping people that have been injured in car accidents or tractor-trailer accidents. Because my dad is a truck driver, and because I drove a truck while working my way through college, I believe that I have a unique insight into the operation of tractor-trailers and that this insight makes me well suited to work on accidents involving tractor-trailers.
