I was an argumentative kid. As you can imagine, and as is often the case for many of my colleagues, when I was about eight years old every adult I knew told me I should become a lawyer. The reason I was argumentative (beyond being the only boy with four younger sisters) is that I was intensely passionate about everything. I cared so deeply about even the most inconsequential things. However, I didn’t become a lawyer because all those adults said I should. I became a lawyer because I chose to channel my intensity and passion into helping people. Here at BrownWinick, I get to do that each and every day.
Litigation can quickly become messy and expensive, and it’s important for any lawyer to keep your best interests in mind when helping to guide you through a dispute. Sometimes good counsel means helping you decide which battles are worth fighting, other times good counsel means strategic and aggressive filings and advocacy. My job is to evaluate your dispute and help you decide which approach will best achieve your goals in the most efficient way possible.
More About Me
Having grown up in and around the Iowa City—Kalona area, I was born and raised a Hawkeye. In 2016, I earned my B.A. with high distinction and honors, in Ethics & Public Policy from the University of Iowa, and then received my J.D., with distinction, from the University of Iowa in 2019—on my birthday no less.
During law school, I earned the Bergstrom Fellowship at the University of Michigan Child Advocacy Law Clinic. I spent a summer in Chicago working for the Family Defense Center to help families work their way through the Child Welfare system. I also volunteered with Kids First, an Iowa-based organization that counsels and represents kids whose parents are getting divorced.
I also received the Donald P. Lay Faculty Recognition Award for distinctive contributions to the law school community, and I won best advocate in our school’s Moot Court competition.
