About Me

I was born in the Grand Rapids area and settled in Southeast Michigan with my family after graduating from the University of Michigan Law School in 2001.


I take pride in helping local businesses succeed.  In my practice, I assist in structuring business organizations and joint ventures, negotiating and drafting contracts to protect my clients' interests, litigate in court to advocate for my clients' rights, and assist my clients in workouts with lenders and other creditors with the goal of returning the business to financial health.
