Green came highly referred by the National Association of Attorneys General’s Supreme Court coordinator, federal jurists from district courts to the Supreme Court, as well as multiple offices of attorneys general of other states.

A native Utahn, Green attended Jordan High School where he led the Beetdiggers to a 4-A state championship in football while earning all-state honors himself.
