My interest in appellate law began in law school, where I was awarded first place in a national moot court competition and received a grant of certiorari from the United States Supreme Court as part of a SCOTUS litigation clinic. Following law school, I clerked for Judge Jay Bybee on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, where I witnessed firsthand the importance of effective brief writing and appellate advocacy. That experience now guides my practice as I persuasively frame and present legal issues.
