From 1995 to 2007, I served as lead attorney for the
Alaska Legislature, where I advised and counseled
leading legislators, administration officials and staff
on complex legal and policy issues ranging from
tax policy to Native law. I served as committee counsel,
carried specific legislation and worked regularly
with top state and federal officials.
I am a distinguished member of the Alaska Bar,
a magna cum laude graduate of the University of
Arizona College of Law (1994) and an accredited
author with the Arizona Law Review. I have received
numerous awards and honors for my achievements
as an attorney. I am admitted to practice before the
Alaska Supreme Court, the U.S. District Court and
the United States Supreme Court.
I have practiced in the private sector as a civil litigator
and I served as a law clerk before the Honorable Judge
Elaine Andrews. I have forged strong relationships
with key officials throughout Alaska and at the federal
level. My professional and personal ties within local,
state and federal governments serve as a tremendous
resource in pursuit of my clients’ goals.
