Associate Attorney
McKenzie Law Offices, PLLC
Here I learned all the ins and outs of running a successful criminal practice. Curtis McKenzie was the owner of the firm. I was brought on to handle all the criminal cases. Mr. McKenzie was a senator in the Idaho legislature, and needed an associate to handle his criminal case load.
Limited License Legal Intern
Gem County Prosecuting Attorney's Office
My first experience practicing as a licensed attorney. Here I gained valuable insight into how prosecuting attorneys think. I gained a great deal of skills and knowledge and worked under some of the best and brightest prosecuting attorneys Idaho has to offer. I also learned something about myself, I am a defender, not a prosecutor.
Legal Intern
Ada County Public Defender's Office
My introduction to the world of criminal defense. This is where I fell in love with the practice of defending the accused. I gained important skills and knowledge by working at the Ada County Public Defender's Office. I learned not only how to be a criminal defense attorney, but I became acquainted with the Judges, Prosecuting Attorneys, and other Defense Attorneys in Ada County.
