About Me

Having faced a personal custody battle that culmanated in my victory in the Michigan Supreme Court, I know from personal experience the challenges faced by those in divorce and custody disputes. 


Forgoing fancy offices and a staff of paralegals and assistants, I focus my clients resources on efficient legal representation.

    David and I have worked on cases both formally and informally. David really cares about his clients and reaching the best outcome for them. He is also very intellectual, so his courtroom arguments are solid and extremely well researched. I highly recommend him.
