I have lived and practiced law in St. Joseph County for 40 years. My goal has been to provide quality legal services to "regular folks" with an affordable fee structure often including instalment payments. I married a native South Bender and have raised two marvelous children, one of whom has blessed me with a grandchild.
I have served on several community boards and volunteered for civic, political and charitable organizations. My favorite hobby is singing--for churches and synagogues, the South Bend Chamber Singers, and other local groups.

A reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Stephen's comment:“I failed to provide notice to a party who was traveling across the country, and rather than file a written affidavit of my efforts to notify him I gave a verbal report. This violated the rules.”
