About Me

I am a native of Kalamazoo, graduating from Loy Norrix High School and earning my Bachelor's Degree in Public Law from Western Michigan University. I later earned my J.D. from the Michigan State University School of Law. Most recently I received a Certificate of Completion in the area Family Law by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

Prior to opening my practice I worked for Legal Services of South Central Michigan, where I developed a strong interest in helping family law clients. Since then I've represented clients in a number of different family law matter, occasionally branching out to aid litigants in landlord tenant disputes, criminal defense and federal appeals.

On a personal level, when I'm not working I spend my time with my wife and two children, both of whom are avid soccer players and slated to be Loy Norrix graduates as well.
