About Me

We sue debt collectors when they harass people.  We sue credit reporting agencies such as Experian, Trans Union and Equifax when they refuse to remove incorrect information from people's credit reports.


I am a consumer rights attorney.  I have been practicing in consumer rights for seveal years.  I have been recognized in Michigan and across the country as a leading consumer advocate.  I am an occasional faculty member of the Michigan Institute of Continuing Legal Education.  I speak on consumers' rights issues such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

When not practicing law, I enjoy, sailing, bike riding, lifting weights and karate.  I hold a black belt in Isshin Ryu Karate.
