I am a second-generation native of Arizona. I was raised in the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree, Arizona. From an early age, my parents instilled in me the importance of hard work and taking pride in my work.
During my childhood, my father owned a plant nursery which was also where my family lived. I worked at the family nursery throughout my childhood.
The Law Decision
In middle school, while studying American history, I decided that I wanted to practice law like many of our nation’s founders. I wasted no time getting started.
At the age of eighteen, I was married, attending college full-time and I worked full-time for a non-profit legal organization.
The College Years
As a child of an entrepreneur, it felt natural for me to pursue the study of business. I attended Arizona Christian University and majored in business administration.
After college, my wife and I moved across the country to Lynchburg, Virginia, where I attended Liberty University School of Law.
Law School: Recruiter & Student
Prior to beginning my own law studies, I worked as a recruiter for the law school. I traveled all over the country recruiting college graduates to consider attending the law school at Liberty University.
As a recruiter, I met many friends and future classmates. I don’t know how many lawyers enjoyed law school, but I loved it.
I was captivated by the students, faculty, and methodology of Liberty.
It was challenging, humbling and nothing like my undergraduate studies. Nothing made you prepare more for each class than a professor’s use of the Socratic Method.
One professor would call on a student and make them stand and answer his questions. If it was evident that the student had not prepared for the class, the professor would make them leave the classroom for the remainder of the class.
After law school, my family returned to Arizona. I began working for a small law firm where I first met my friend Sean St. Clair. We would work together at one other law firm before we decided to start our own.
Founding Fowler St Clair
In 2011, I decided it was time to be my own boss. I hung a shingle, as they say, and began a transition that ultimately culminated in the formation of Fowler St. Clair.
Along with my partner, Sean, I manage Fowler St. Clair. My law practice primarily focuses on estate planning, real estate, business, and civil litigation. In addition to representing clients, I am a board member of the Christian Legal Society – Phoenix Chapter.
Family and Hobbies
When I am not working, I am with my wife and four sons.
We enjoy traveling with our pop-up camper to the U.S. National Parks and Monuments.
So far, as a family we have visited the following parks and monuments:
- Arches National Park
- Canyon Lands National Park
- Yellowstone National Park
- Grand Teton National Park
- Rocky Mountain National Park
I enjoy sports and am an avid hiker. Every year I look forward to hiking the Grand Canyon from rim-to-rim. This coming October I will be doing my ninth trip across the Grand Canyon.
Most recently, I hiked to the top of Yosemite’s iconic Half Dome.
