Wanted to become a physician but the law became of interest to me in a freak accident where my 2 yr. old son Michael had pulled himself up onto a metal folding chair in Sunday School class and in doing so, the chair folded up on his finger, cutting it off. We rushed the lad to UC Davis Hospital where he was triaged behind those drunks who had fallen down after biting their lips etc., and I was enraged. Here was my little boy losing his finger as I struggled to hold the tip to the exposed bone, horrified watching as it dried out. At last a cart with saline went by and I grabbed it and began squirting the finger tip with saline. Ultimately he was seen and the finger was saved. However, when I wrote the LDS Church and asked if they would please remove all such sharp, folding chairs from their buildings to keep the same thing from happening again, i was poo-pooed and told that the Church is self-funded and does not have a liability policy, to which my response was "well isn't that too bad, because all I asked you to do is remove similar chairs to prevent a similar occurrence from repeating itself and all you tell me is "let us do our jobs." I was furious and vowed that day to sue the Church. It was this experience that led me to become an attorney. Too many people are victims of crimes and negligence. They are in need of an advocate. I have spent my career advocating for people.
Honors: Note Editor for the Journal of Public Health
Activities: Extensive studies into the history of the LDS Church which led me to ask to have my name removed.

Q. Should long distance custody agreements allow for children to miss up to two weeks of school per year for non custodial?
A: Are these consecutive or contiguous weeks? Second question, two weeks is not a terribly long time. They can also take schoolwork home and study remotely so why are you willing to spend thousands of dollars on attorneys for something simple that you should be able to work out in emails?
Q. Me and my wife are going thru a divorce we used or to co own car. She is taking my name off it. I paid for most of it.
A: She needs it because she has primary custody of the child, right? You "need" it because you have mostly made the payments on it, right? You don't also happen to own a pickup that YOU drive, do you? I'm sorry, this sounds S E L F I S H to me and a divorce judge will PROBABLY see it the same way. Here's the way I (and most my lawyer friends) do divorce settlements: we make 2 columns, "Dad's and Mom's. For everything that goes in mom's column, we'll include a value. Same for dad's column. We TRY to roughly even out the columns so that each party gets a "fair" distribution of personal property. However, if you have a 2 year old, then you're probably in your 20's and my BEST advice to you would be "DON'T SWEAT THE LITTLE THINGS!" As long as you're a decent father, be happy to receive your beautiful 2 yr. old daughter, every other week, alternate holidays, 4-6 weeks in the summer etc. and DON'T BE A DOUCHE, report your income accurately and PAY YOUR CHILD SUPPORT! Your life will be immensely improved in just one year than it is right now!
Q. I'm under 18 I have saved and am ready to buy a car with all cash do I need to have a cosigner on the title in Idaho
A: Hi there, Yes you need to have a co-signer, not because you may not have good credit but for the same reason that you may NOT title a car in your name, until you're 18 yrs. old. So, right now you can titled it in yourname/co-signer's name and then in one year, re-title it in just your name. I know it's a hassle but you need to put yourself in the shoes of a car dealership. They might inadvertently sell a vehicle to an "underage" person and the person then defaults on payments. The "contract" is void and so the dealership will lose. It's probably for those reasons that the Legislature made it law that only persons >18 years may "legally contract" or "title" or ? you name it! Oh, and same with car insurance. The ins. co. will balk at selling you car insurance first because you're name isn't on the title but secondly, because statistically, you're 100 zillion times more likely to get in an accident than I am, I'm old. So, good luck waiting a year and final advice, don't fudge and drive before your birthday!
