About Me

I grew up in Saginaw Township and now live in the City of Saginaw.  I  moved in to the city in 2005 for I am optimistic about the future of this Saginaw and the Great Lakes Bay Region.


My practice may seem diverse, but  it is all inter-related.  Working with school districts, governments and businesses requires that a lawyer be well versed in a multitude of areas and so many of these areas overlap. 


School districts and governments are, ultimately, another form of business.  All businesses are made up of people and regardless of the size of the district, governement or business, I end up dealing with people one-on-one.  It is this interaction and representation that makes the practice of law so rewarding.
