About me


Being Christian affects
every aspect of our approach to the practice of law and the way we treat our
clients. The very idea of Christian lawyers may seem like an oxymoron, but it
is a responsibility that we take very seriously. We believe that we are called
to not only uphold the laws and ethics codes handed down by the State, but more
importantly, to adhere to the values set forth in the Bible.


 


We make every
effort to act in a way that will not only benefit our clients, but will also
reflect our desire to perform work that is pleasing to God. We strongly believe
that this adds value to the service we provide and it separates us from many
other law firms you could choose to work with.

 


The best way to find out more about me personally and the firm is to visit our website: www.greatlakesprobate.com. That site provides not only personal information about myself and my partner, but also a great deal about the work that we do, our professional philosophy and estate planning and probate information that most clients find helpful.
