Born and raised in Anchorage, Ian's passion is for the people of his home state. He is working to provide exceptional and affordable legal services for his fellow Alaskans. His future plans include running for governor of the 49th state. Ian has played baseball from the time when he could first lift a bat and glove. After graduating from Dimond High School, Ian spent a year studying to be an architectural engineer at Illinois Tech (where he played second base just across the street from the Chicago White Sox), then majored in Political Science at UAA. He went to law school in Idaho, interned with the Anchorage Prosecutor's Office, and was an associate at the Law Offices of Dan Allan prior to starting his own practice in 2009. He put himself through college and law school driving trucks and forklifts and plowing snow at Spenard Builders Supply. Constantly in awe of the beauty of God's Creation here in the Last Frontier, Ian enjoys the Alaskan wilderness in every season. He is also an avid poker player and art collector. He and his wife have two daughters, and he hopes to build a (not too) remote family cabin someday soon. Ian believes deeply in giving generously, recognizing that God has blessed us with the means to turn and bless others for His glory. To this end, the Law Office of Ian Wheeles is committed to serving and blessing others in this community.
