About me

I am a senior shareholder at Sommers Schwartz, P.C. I represent clients in multiple counties through the State of Michigan and Federal courts, where on behalf on my clients I negotiated hundreds of substantial settlements to compensate them for their loss or injury. I have an outstanding trial record obtaining multiple million dollar verdicts and have been named "Top 100 Trial Lawers" State of Michigan by the American Trial Lawyers Association.

From the time I graduated high school, I wanted to become a lawyer.  After graduating from college, I accepted a teaching and coaching position which continued for 17 years.  During that time, I served as the President and Chief Negotiator for the Teachers’ Union and acted as their advocate. Based upon this experience, my interest in becoming a lawyer was rekindled.  Upon passing the bar in 1985, I joined Sommers Schwartz and began advocating for accident victims and clients with injuries and  substandard medical care. I continue to find satisfaction in advocating for the underdog against big insurance companies and corporations helping clients seek compensation for the injuries they have wrongfully sustained.
