I’d be grateful for your vote for Bar Commissioner, Third Division.
This past year I was fortunate to co-chair the Bar’s Civics Committee which, with the help of over 170 volunteer judges and lawyers, taught 193 junior high and high school classes across the state about the Constitution and separation of powers. I am also presently serving on the Third District’s Pro Bono Committee and on the Board of Utah’s Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. In the past I have been a mentor and worked in the Bar’s Litigation, Construction and ADR Sections
I’ve been a commercial litigator for 29 years, first with a mid-sized firm, then with one partner, and for the past eleven years at a large firm. If I’ve learned anything it is that an independent, fully staffed and functioning judiciary is essential to our system of government. By the same token, in my view, the Utah State Bar is at its best when it efficiently supports its members of every stripe, with regulatory support, valuable educational opportunities and a chance to serve the community.
You can count on me working with you and the Bar to continue to bring these benefits to fruition.
