About Me

While I run a general practice law firm in Lansing, Michigan, my focus is on criminal defense. I have represented clients in a number of different criminal cases and I have secured excellent results. In numerous cases I have had clients who were facing years in prison, but when the gavel struck my client walked out the door a free man. How do I gain these great results? To put it simply -- I know the law. I will employ every legal and ethical mean to protect the interests of my clients. While I cannot promise the same results for you that I have secured in previous cases, I will dedicate myself in the battle for your rights.


The other part of my practice is general litigation. I handle a variety of different civil actions including personal injury, negligence, assault, defamation, fraud, and real estate.

In my personal life I enjoy reading, writing, singing and playing guitar.
