Attorney Profile

Appeals are my passion. There is nothing more thrilling to me as a lawyer than standing before the highest judges to explain to them why the law should favor my client. If your case is headed toward appeal, I would be honored to stand for you.

I started Olympic Appeals PLLC in 2017 to provide high quality representation and helpful client service in civil, criminal, and family law appeals. I work hard to present each case with focus and clarity, helping the judges to make a correct decision in my client's favor. I pledge to keep my clients and their trial lawyers informed as the case progresses, to be open and honest, to listen to their concerns and answer their questions.

I graduated fifth in my class at the University of Iowa College of Law in 2010. I have been the lead appellate attorney on over 50 cases in state and federal appellate courts. I have been recognized by peers, judges, and court staff for the quality of my work. I continuously work to hone the skills that have led to my success.

I am available for referral, association, or consultation in civil, criminal, or family law appeals. Whether you are looking to hand off the case or just get a little help, I am here for you.
