Devin was born and raised in Billings, Montana and values his deep ties to the community. As the son of a certified public accountant and a registered nurse, Devin sometimes jokingly quips that he was surrounded by interesting stories on the two certainties in life coined by Benjamin Franklin: “Death and Taxes.” All kidding aside, Devin sincerely appreciates the importance of family, business, and tax planning. He prepares personally customized business plans and thoughtfully prepared estate plans.

Devin completed his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where he studied Political Science and Business. Devin attended Creighton University School of Law where he focused heavily in tax, business law, and estate planning. He also served as a member of the Creighton Law Review.
