Young Lawyers News

Posted on: Aug 24, 2017

I was born and raised in Indianapolis. I graduated from Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School (2005), Indiana University (2009), and Indiana University Maurer School of Law (2013). I am currently an attorney with Gutwein Law, in Indianapolis, where I focus on commercial litigation, real estate, and corporate transactional work. I represent a wide range of clients, but my focus is in the startup world. 

While I’m not working, I enjoy reading, playing guitar, researching guitar gear, and coaching. I’m also currently looking to purchase my first home, which is taking up much of my time. 

I became involved in IndyBar after taking the bar exam. I have been as active as possible in the bar association, and I would recommend it to any young lawyer. I’ve been on various committees in YLD, including the executive committee, and I also just completed the Bar Leader Series as a graduating member of Class XIV. 

IndyBar and the YLD especially are the best ways to meet other attorneys both new and experienced. The people I have met at YLD social events have truly advanced my career and make learning the practice of law as a young attorney much easier. Feel free to contact me ( anytime if you have any questions or want to get more involved.
