About me

I have been practicing criminal defense law since I earned my law license in 1987. The cases that I have handled have included everything from homocides to trespassing tickets. My primary counties of practice are Livingston, Washtenaw, Ingham and Oakland However, I have also covered other neighboring counties as well such as Jackson, Clinton, Genesee, etc.


My favorite pastimes are bike riding and traveling.
