Jared has been practicing bankruptcy law almost exclusively since he graduated from the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 2000.
While his parents are Arizona natives, they did the typical Arizona native thing and checked out the greener grass somewhere else. This meant that Jared spent 18 years in cold, dismal Wyoming before his parents finally decided to liberate him from the cold and return Arizona.
Jared graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Political Science, which meant that he would have to attend law school as there is nothing one can really do with a political science degree. While attending ASU, Jared developed a love of ASU sports and was even a Frieder Fanatic during undergrad, which involved him dressing up like the current basketball coach and spray painting his hair gray. Something he no longer has to do.
While in college, Jared became involved in politics and eventually worked on congressional campaigns and as an intern for Vice President Quayle’s PAC. He also worked for the Phoenix Symphony helping to raise funds. Working for the Arts and Republican politics were oddly similar. Jared’s former boss encouraged him to take the LSAT, the law school admissions test, and from there it was off to lovely Sacramento for three years of law school at the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.
With the help of his lovely wife, Heather, Jared was able to graduate and promptly return to Phoenix where he has spent the last 11 years helping people file for bankruptcy and get their lives back. The one thing he likes most about being a bankruptcy attorney is that his clients’ lives get better after they file.
Jared lives in Peoria with his wife and their two dogs, Q and Scarlett. He loves to read and will often read two to four books a week. Much to his wife’s chagrin he is still an avid gamer and loves his Call of Duty and Gears of War. Jared is also involved in an ASU tailgating group that has taken tailgating to the next level, by which he means, two televisions, and three mobile evap coolers.
