About Me

Prior to
attending law school I worked in the law practice industry; however,
I was disappointed by the widespread lack of service and
unprofessionalism that I observed. I strongly believed that it was
possible to provide high quality legal services while still treating
clients with the respect and dignity that they deserved, so I quit my job and went on to
graduated magna cum laude from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Today,
I strive to maintain that same level of excellence in my practice. I
exist to serve my clients. It can be both financially and emotionally
draining to be involved in a legal dispute. I understand and appreciate the
difficulties that you may be facing, and I am dedicated to finding a
solution that is tailored to you and your situation.
