About Me

I have been involved in representing employers in all aspects of employment and labor law for over 35 years.  The best way to avoid a law suit is to be proactive in addressing issues before they become problems.  When problems arise, I help clients consider the most practical and cost effective approach to take.

I have been certified as a civil mediator in Michigan and have had extensive experience in representing clients in mediation.  I have also served as a mediator.

I have handled administrative agency proceedings with the NLRB, EEOC, Department of Labor, OSHA, and similar state agencies.
