Vanessa Vietz joined Pearson and Butler shortly after graduating from Gonzaga University School of Law. During law school, Vanessa focused her studies on litigation, clerking for a civil litigation firm in Washington, and completing an internship with the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office. She also volunteered with the Juvenile Records Sealing Program, where she worked to seal the criminal records of juvenile offenders. During this time, Vanessa was responsible for all aspects of casework, including case development, client communication, motions, and hearings. Ultimately, Vanessa was drawn to family law as a way to advocate for justice and help her clients obtain favorable outcomes.
Prior to law school, Vanessa obtained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Idaho. She is admitted to practice law in Idaho. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and reading.
