Owner & Attorney at Law
I began working in the area of consumer protection over ten years ago, and have helped countless Montanans with financial legal issues including debt collections, bankruptcy, foreclosure, landlord-tenant problems, credit report errors, and more. My passion is helping everyday people defend their legal rights when it comes to their finances.
My Consumer Protection background includes:
Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellow with Montana Legal Services Association's Consumer Unit, overseeing MLSA's self-help bankruptcy program and helping low-income Montanans with consumer law issues.
American Bar Association Janet Steiger Antitrust Fellow with the Office of Consumer Protection in the Montana Attorney General's Office.
Nationally-certified financial educator and foreclosure prevention specialist with Homeword
Helped found the Montana Financial Education Coalition and the Montana Alliance for Responsible Finance to promote financial education and fair lending practices in Montana.
Drafted and lobbied for anti-predatory lending laws at the Montana Legislature.
Adjunct faculty at University of Montana School of Law (Products Liability)
Editor-in-Chief of Montana Law Review 2007-2008
I am admitted to practice in all Montana state courts, United States District Court for the District of Montana, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I am proud to be a member of the State Bar of Montana, the Montana Trial Lawyers' Association, and the National Association of Consumer Advocates.
When I am not in the office, I can be found getting lost outside, listening to old country songs, and trying to keep up with an energetic seven-year-old and two-year-old.
