About Me

Broadly stated, my client goal is simple: Get the best possible result at an efficient price. If getting the best result costs my client more in attorney fees and court costs than what he/she gains from the lawsuit, what's the point? I've made him/her worse off. Civil litigation should not be a losing proposition. A good attorney should not only know the law and procedure --- but be able to assess the risks and costs.


 


I practice general civil litigation and appeals, and am admitted to practice in the following courts:


 



  • All Michigan courts

  • U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan

  • U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan

  • U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois

  • U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio

  • U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas 

  • U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado

  • U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan

  • U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio

  • U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois

  • U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit

  • U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit

  • Supreme Court of the United States


 


I have been admitted from time to time on a case by case basis to practice in the following courts :


 



  • U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio

  • U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida

  • U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida

  • U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas
