Tanner is a native of Kansas City where he attended Metropolitan Community College before completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Studies at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. As an undergraduate, Tanner began developing his litigation skills as a member of the Washburn University Mock Trial team.  During his senior year, he was also an intern for a Kansas State Senator where he conducted research relevant to the Senator’s service as a member of the state’s Public Safety and Transportation subcommittees.
