Prior to joining Foulston Siefkin, Clayton served as a law clerk to Judge Consuelo M. Callahan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and Judge Eric F. Melgren of the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas, which provided him with a unique insight into the inner workings of the federal courts.
