About Me

Whether an office professional or a laborer, every employee deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Unfortunately, many workers struggle with unfair workplace policies or hostile work environments all across the State of Michigan. If you or a family member feels victimized in the workplace, it is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately.
