About me

I received my Juris Doctor degree from Cooley Law School in May 1986.  I entered private practice in October 1987.  I  specialize in Domestic Relations. In 2007 I took a 40-hour class through the Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) to be trained as a mediator.  I have maintained my ceritification, with my most recent class in April 2013.  I practice primarily in Genesee and Shiawassee Counties.  During the past three years, I have served as chairperson of the Family Court Committee of the Genesee County Bar Association.  I also will be the President of the Shiawassee County Bar Association for 2013-14, serving this past year as the Vice-Preisdent.
