I worked during college as a construction laborer which served as the foundation for my interest and expertise as a construction law attorney. I am proud to be one of four attorneys in my family. My older brother(deceased) and two of my four sons have practiced law. My wife Debby and I are avid golfers. We also enjoy weekends at our summer cottage on Elk Lake in Norhtern Michigan.

Employment attorneys focus on the many laws concerning the relationship between employers and employees. If you feel your employer has treated you wrongly as an employee, or if you're an employer who needs to terminate an unsatisfactory employee, you may benefit from the services of an employment attorney. Some professionals, such as teachers, policemen, and pilots, belong to labor unions, which have specific negotiation and labor law procedures that protect union members. A labor attorney will know which laws apply to your particular situation and how you can take advantage of the laws to protect your rights.
