Jared obtained his law degree from the University of Utah School of Law and his Master of Laws (LL.M) degree in taxation from the University of Alabama School of Law. He has presented on the subjects of bankruptcy, creditors rights, and taxation to a variety of trade associations.

Jared grew up in the west (Idaho and Utah) and chose to make Montana his home 14 years ago. He and his wife are raising 5 active children in Billings. Being born, raised and educated in the mountain west, Jared understands the unique challenges western Americans face and is therefore also licensed to practice law in North Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah so that he may assist clients of the west wherever their legal needs may arise.

Jared enjoys spending time outside of the office with family, long-distance running (completed three marathons and three half-marathons), family and church activities, Dutch oven cooking, reading, and I-devices.
