About me

I've been practicing criminal defense since 2009, predominantly through court-appointed cases in Macomb County for felonies 5 years or less.  I have defended clients in the District Courts as well, including 36th District in Detroit; 41-A in Sterling Heights; 41-B District in Clinton Township; and many others. 

I defended and successfully prevented a Parole Violation in 2010.

I am also a writer and am expanding my practice in the area of Author Law for writers including such areas as Copyright, privacy matters, and contracts, beginning in August, 2013.


I intentionally keep my case rate low to focus my attention on my clients' matters.
