Dylan, a Boulder native, attended CU Boulder for undergraduate and earned his BS from the School of Journalism, graduating on Dean’s List in 2010. Dylan interned at Section 45 Advertising while in school, and upon graduation worked as a freelance copywriter. Dylan changed the course of his career and decided to attend law school at the University of Denver Sturm College Of Law. He was awarded a Provost Scholarship, a merit based scholarship that paid for much of his education. During the summer of Dylan’s first year in school, he tried out for the Denver University Law Review and was accepted to join as an Editor. In his final year, he was promoted to Assistant Managing Editor.
While in law school, Dylan spent his first summer at Moye White, LLP, working largely on transactional matters. He spent the next fall semester as a law clerk for the 18th Judicial District Court, working for Judge Collins on a mixed docket. While there Dylan observed a variety of proceedings ranging from preliminary criminal hearings, to discovery disputes and trials, and researched legal issues for Judge Collins. During this time Dylan also participated in the National Trial Team Trial Practicum, a mock trial team that represents the law school. Dylan’s hunger for courtroom experience prompted him to participate in the Civil Litigation Clinic, representing clients seeking in domestic abuse cases. He conducted hearings to assist these clients to obtain permanent protection orders, primarily in the Denver District Court. After completing his Clinical law experience, Dylan worked for a small personal injury practice to get his feet wet in the personal injury field. Finally, in his final semester of law school, Dylan worked for the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office prosecuting cases under the Student Practice Act. After Dylan tried three cases before a jury, he knew that he wanted to be in the courtroom. After passing the Colorado Bar Exam, he joined Franklin D. Azar & Associates to work full time in the field of personal injury at a firm with a familiar name.
When not working, Dylan spends his time customizing vintage motorcycles. His current project is rebuilding a 1978 Suzuki GS1000 motorcycle into a café racer. Dylan also enjoys cooking with friends, especially BBQ, and learning classic French style cuisine.
