Modesto, California

I love connecting with people.  Through my work at the Law Office of Gary C. Nelson, I am able to help clients with a variety of matters and have the opportunity to connect with many people from all walks of life. 

I graduated from California State University Sacramento with a Bachelor of Science and received my Juris Doctor degree from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.  I passed the California Bar exam in December 2011.  I am admitted to practice in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth District and the United States Federal Court.  I am a member in good standing with the California Bar. 

When I am not helping others at the Law Office of Gary C. Nelson, I am enjoying time with my pets, traveling, reading and yoga.
