I assist people in resolving their family law issues with dignity and respect for all parties involved. I have more than a decade of experience guiding people as they reorganize their families, and I am trained and comfortable using every popular method of dispute resolution. I am committed to being a leader in my field, and have been elected by my peers to lead the State Bar of Michigan's Family Law Section, the Washtenaw County Family Law Section, and to serve on the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board (Washtenaw County panel) and other bar organizations. Due to my enthuiasm, passion and dedication to excellence in family law, I am frequently asked to publish and speak on issues related to family law, and the Wayne State University Law Review currently relies on me to provide their annual analysis of Michigan Family Law. Because of my expertise, competency and commitment to my clients and the law, I am frequently hired by fellow attorneys and their clients to mediate or arbitrate their cases and find the challenge of helping parties to resolve different personal circumstances very rewarding. I am certified as an "Elder Mediator" and believe that mediation is a perfect vehicle to help families navigate through the difficult issues involved with aging.
