Profile

Carrie is an Arizona-licensed attorney, currently focused on various areas of law, from banking and real estate to asset protection and business formation.  She is adept at bridging the gap between the structure of compliance and the freedom of innovation, and regularly consults with entrepreneurial startups and existing entities on ways to govern their organizations, mitigate potential loss, implement new technologies, and strategically prepare for success.  Carrie is a trained litigator, enjoys transactional work, and acts as a trustee on behalf of her clients.  Additionally, she is dedicated to alternative dispute resolution and is listed as an arbitrator with FINRA and as a mediator with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the District of Arizona.

Over the last decade, Carrie’s clients have included national banks, credit unions, financial institutions, investors, lenders, and other institutional entities requiring assistance in reforming and reenergizing asset classes and portfolios comprised of underperforming, at-risk, and defaulted asset-backed products.  She has participated as a team member for committees governing the state’s judiciary and also offers a portion of her time to providing legal advice and work to underserved or underrepresented individuals through the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education’s Modest Means program.  Carrie also chairs local chapters of the Government Blockchain Association, advocates for progressive legislation related to this nascent technology, and accepts public speaking engagements from trade organizations to educate industry groups on its anticipated transformative power.

Prior to practicing as an attorney, Carrie worked in business, both as an employee and an entrepreneur, focusing domestically on sales and marketing with a few large corporations, and internationally on product development, manufacturing, supply chain management, import/export, marketing, and distribution for a few bootstrapped ventures and startups working overseas to bring consumer goods to the American marketplace.   

Carrie holds a J.D. from Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and participated in undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University in Idaho and Utah, focusing on International Relations and Arabic Studies.  Carrie is admitted to practice in the State of Arizona and the United States District Courts in Arizona.
