Areas of Practice:
Evan grew up in north central Ohio near Mansfield, surrounded by corn and wheat fields on all sides. He constantly stayed busy training for his school’s tennis and wrestling teams. When not practicing, he spent time studying for honor classes and spending time with his family and friends.
After high school, Evan was accepted to Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. He had initially been accepted into the school’s engineering program, but transferred into their undecided program before switching to political science. Still, he had no idea what direction he wanted his career to head. “I felt lost,” said Evan.
A career advisor at the university recommended he reach out to the South Eastern Ohio Legal Services office there in Athens for an internship. Evan ended up loving it, helping with disability social security claims and getting a chance to shadow in a number of other areas. From there, Evan decided that he would go down the path of becoming an attorney.
Evan enrolled and was subsequently accepted to the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Having found his passion at a legal service group, Evan interned at the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati working in the housing department. There he helped people fight evictions and navigate the mortgage process.
Since joining Murphy Landen Jones PLLC, Evan has been exposed to a number of areas of law and has shown an eagerness to learn. In particular, he has taken a deep dive into business and construction litigation as well as working in a number of other areas. When he is not at work, Evan enjoys hiking and sight seeing having fallen in love with Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. “After growing up where everything is completely flat and three-fourths of the land is corn, wheat, or beans; it’s hard not to want to be out exploring the hills and forests around here. There always seems somewhere new to see and enjoy.”
