About me

     I am a solo practitioner dedicated to staying up to date on consumer law to get the best results for my clients.  I enjoy fighting for the underdog and trial work.

     Greatest accomplishment, father to my 21 and 25 year old daughters.

     Love UM football, hockey, baseball, fishing, hunting, and writing.
