There is no greater satisfaction than righting a wrong

After graduating cum laude from the Detroit College of Law, I chose the area of personal injury law because because it involves working directly with people.

The experience of meeting, helping and working directly with new people all the time is one of the things I enjoy most about being a lawyer. Each client is different and brings new experiences to my practice.
