About Me

I concentrate in the areas of business organizations, oil and gas, health care, property tax appeals and complex commercial litigation. I have appeared before state and federal courts, and state and federal administrative agencies.  My trial experience includes several jury and bench trials.  In addition to being admitted as a lawyer in Michigan, I am also admitted in Illinois.  My goal is always to first seek a positive resolution for my clients; however, there comes a time when the opposition is not willing to accept the realities of the position in which they find themselves.  In these cases, you want an aggressive and effective litigation attorney in your corner.
