Ian is an experienced dispute resolution professional. He has hands-on experience in corporate, real estate, construction, and probate matters. While he has a proven track record in mediation, arbitration, motions practice, and trial, he strives to help his clients avoid litigation whenever necessary.
Ian grew up in a small town in coastal Maine and attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine, majoring in International Studies and minoring in Music. Ian was involved in intercollegiate sports and still holds Colby College's record in the 1500m run. After taking a break to travel the world, Ian attended the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. He was elected by his peers to serve on the Executive Board of the Denver University Law Review, as Articles Editor, and earned his J.D. in 2011.
During law school, Ian interned with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Colorado Attorney General's office, and Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell LLP. After passing the bar exam, Ian clerked for the Hon. Herbert L. Stern, III on a civil docket in Denver District Court. Ian then used his knowledge of the civil trial court system in large-firm private practice for several years, before relocating to Steamboat Springs to join Steamboat Lawyers Group.
