As an attorney and advocate, my practice is driven by my passion for people and meeting them where they are to provide the services they need. I strive to encourage the development of thriving communities by making the justice system accessible to all and bridging the gap between need and ability.

Public Interest: The Legal Samaritans of Montana offer clinics and services to individuals through various organizations to educate our community and neighbors about the laws in Montana, their legal rights and the options available to them.

Wills and Probate: In addition, I serve my clients by providing simple Will drafting and assist families in navigating the intricate and often stressful areas of Probate. Whether it’s before or after a loved one passes, I will help give your family the peace of mind or planning they deserve.
