About Me

I am a veteran of Desert Storm. I served in the US Navy. After I was honorably discharged, I went to college. I received my bachelor's degree from Eastern Michigan University and my law degree from Wayne State Law School.


 


I am a trained mediator. Between the time that I graduated from law school and the time I opened my own law practice, I helped run a nonprofit mediation firm in Wayne County. There, I mediated a wide range of civil cases, including contract disputes, business-to-business disputes, divorce, custody and parenting time disputes, and many, many others. I use my mediation experience to help my clients.


 


I am also a trial attorney. I concentrate my practice in three primary areas: criminal defense, divorce/custody, and Ch. 7 bankruptcy. I care about my clients and want to help them obtain the best possible results. To that end, I regularly go to advanced trainings and participate in groups to help learn innovative trial techniques, so that I can advocate effectively for my clients in and out of court.
