Personal/Professional Profile

Ian was born in Anchorage and played baseball from the time when he could first lift a bat and glove.  He continued to play through high school and college and expects to crack the major leagues very soon.  While he fights for this dream, he has decided to make a living fighting for the lives of others as an attorney here in Alaska.  He will soon be running for governor of the 49th State and on his 35th birthday will declare his candidacy for President of the United States.

Ian loves the outdoors and all that God's Creation offers here in the Last Frontier.  He enjoys camping, hunting, hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, skiing, skating and most everything else one can experience in Alaska.

Ian graduated from Dimond High School.  He spent a year studying to be an architectural engineer at Illinois Tech (where he played second base just across the street from the Chicago White Sox), then majored in Political Science at UAA.  He went to law school in Idaho, interned with the Anchorage Prosecutor's Office, and finally settled on helping criminal defendants and Alaskans with family law needs.  And somewhere in the middle of all of this he spent seven years driving trucks and forklifts and plowing snow at Spenard Builders Supply.

Case Summaries

- Successfully fought for dismissal of alcohol importation charges for Rural Alaskan Client by challenging lawfulness of warrant obtained by state trooper to search client's luggage at airport.

- Successfully obtained writ of assistance for out-of-state client to enforce custody order by returning client's son to her from father in Alaska who was allowing son to stay in defiance of court.

- Successful in multiple cases at both defending and prosecuting Domestic Violence long-term protective orders.  Has had good success with negotiating the dismissal of petitions for protective orders with opposing parties through mutual civil no-contact agreements - - this has protected multiple client's rights to possess firearms and keep their Alaskan privilege to subsistence hunting.

- Successfully negotiated reduced charges in felony cases to misdemeanor convictions using creative plea bargain agreements by encouraging the client to take a proactive approach to resolving his or her case, and impressing the district attorney and judge with their responsible initiative.

- Successful aggressive DUI defense to secure plea offers to reduced charges, such as reckless driving, negligent or careless driving, and disorderly conduct.

- Experienced in arguing appeals before the Supreme Court of Alaska.

- Excellent cooperative working relationship with Anchorage prosecutors gained from summer internship in Municipal prosecutor's office.  This has given me a unique and versatile perspective into the pleas negotiation process, which is very beneficial to clients.

- Experienced with representing clients in rural community courts throughout the state, such as Barrow, King Cove, Craig, Unalaska, Nome, Kotzebue, Bethel, and Sand Point.
