Q: Tell us about your practice and experience.
A: I represent 15 cities and other governmental-type entities. I also have extensive experience in personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Prior to coming to Crary Huff, I served as a Deputy Dakota County Attorney and a probation officer in Nebraska. 

Q: What accomplishments are you proud of?
A: Growing our municipal practice has been a significant achievement and South Sioux City plays a big part in that. We’re definitely a “go-to” municipal law firm for this area. 

Q: How are you involved in your community? 
A: I’m involved in various civic and charitable organizations including South Sioux City chamber events, Knights of Columbus, and Little Cardinal Football for South Sioux City youth. I try to give back professionally as chairperson for mental health boards in several counties. I’m also a past president of the Dakota County Bar Association.

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I've always been very into working out. I was a college athlete, so that’s important to me. I enjoy spending time with my fiancée and two children. I also love being outdoors—motorcycling, boating, or camping all sound good to me.
