I originally trained as a scientist and turned to the practice of law for a new challenge. But I still bring a scientist’s eye to my practice, scrutinizing every detail of a case and methodically working through every issue. This is particularly helpful for appeals, where a command of the record and proper characterization of issues are essential to success. I learned to love appeals while clerking for Justice Durrant of the Utah Supreme Court after graduating from law school. After practicing civil litigation for a few years, I joined Zimmerman Booher to focus exclusively on appeals.
