About Me

Criminal defense is all I do! I have been practicing exclusively criminal law since 1995, representing clients in all criminal matters, including:

  • Drug Charges

  • Homicide/Murder

  • Criminal Law - Federal (White Collar Crime)


  • Sex Crimes

  • Assault & Battery - Plaintiff

  • Traffic Violations

  • Fraud

  • Assault

  • Guns and Weapon Charges

  • Domestic Violence

  • Computer Crimes

  • Juvenile Crimes/MIP

  • Robbery/Theft

  • Probation Violation

  • Expungement

I spend most of my day in court, which means I have the experience and confidence you require when it is time for you to have your day in court. 

My experience as a CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY is supported by my work in the District and Circuit courts throughout Michigan and other states as well.

I am equally comfortable presenting your case to the judge at a bench trial or to your peers at a jury trial. 

100% of my practice is devoted to criminal defense.
