Both my younger brother and I became lawyers

I am proud to have followed the advice of my father and become a lawyer and advocate.

I enjoy the role of advocate, and I enjoy working with and fighting for all of my clients. I started in employment law and then, because of referrals, switched to personal injury and medical malpractice. My greatest strengths are my trial practice and years of experience winning verdicts and settlements for those who have been harmed by both people and institutions.

My passion for fighting for the underdog continues to this day as I help my clients seek compensation from big insurance companies and corporations for the injuries and hardship they have wrongfully caused.

In my previous professions as a teacher, business education president and chief negotiator of a local Michigan Education Association union group, I gained an intimate familiarity with the significance of the law.
