About Me

I grew up in Detroit in a family of lawyers.  I am the fourth generation of my family to attend law school at the University of Michigan.  I am honored to work in this noble profession, and nothing makes me happier then to see the look on a client's face when I am able to obtain a settlement or resolution of their legal problems.


When I am not working on behalf of my clients, you can find me with my family or on the golf course.
