Ray works with the attorneys at Disability Rights Montana doing research, drafting legal documents, and finalizing briefs for state district court, federal court, and the Supreme Court. Ray previously worked in workers’ compensation, water law adjudication for the Idaho Attorney General’s office, and for the State Bar of Montana. Ray attended Montana State University and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 1993 and the Denver Paralegal Institute in 1994.
When Ray was a young child, his father was disabled in an accident which forever changed Ray’s family. There were no advocates for people with disabilities at that time so Ray’s opinion about the need for disability rights is shaped by the struggles experienced by his father and his family.
Ray was born and raised in rural Montana. He enjoys the outdoors, football, and spending time with his family. Ray is also an animal lover and has two beloved dogs.
