Byron I. Roope founded the Law Office of Byron Roope in 2011. From the time he was young, Byron knew that he wanted to be an attorney. He comes from a family of attorneys and always desired to follow in the same path. As an undergraduate at Utah State University, he majored in Law and Constitutional Studies, focusing on courses that would give him a solid foundation in the law. Following his graduation from Utah State, he attended McGeorge School of Law. It was there that he developed his love for the courtroom, excelling in the school’s Trial Advocacy program and serving on the Mock Trial Team.
Before opening his own firm, Byron gained invaluable experience as a Criminal Defense Attorney representing people in all types of matters; from a commercial speeding ticket that could cost a truck driver his job if convicted, to serious felonies that would send his clients to prison for decades. Previous to his time as a Defense Attorney, Byron worked as an attorney for the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office. Over a two year period, he handled thousands of cases, gaining valuable insight into exactly what it takes for a case to be charged and brought to trial. As a result, he can identify potential pitfalls and weaknesses in the evidence brought against his clients, often long before those cases go to court.
In his spare time, Byron performs as an actor and trumpet player for various local theater companies and orchestras.
