About Me

I have been advising Michigan residents on current law for 25 years. Let my experience and tenure bring resolution for your legal needs. By evaluating your case and addressing your options I can successfully navigate you through the legal process.

Legal disputes may seem daunting; let me take the stress out of it for you. It’s what I do. 

Contact me for a gratis 30 minute consultation.


 


I graduated from Michigan State University (Go Spartans) in 1986 with a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management and a Juris Doctorate degree from Michigan State University College of Law 1989. I was also the past president of the Rochester Bar Association, I sit on the MOOT court of law for the local judges, and I am licensed to practice law in the United States Federal Court.

Scott is married with 2 daughters and enjoys spending time in Northern Michigan, does volunteer work, and semi-noncompetitive golf.
