Co-Counsel on the largest police misconduct verdict in Michigan history and the largest verdict in Michigan this year! On November 3, 2016, a jury in the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Michigan returned a $36,600,000 against Genesee County Deputies for using excessive force against a man arrested for drunken driving. Click the link below for details. This is one of many seven figure verdicts and settlements that I have obtained for my clients in civil rights and personal injury cases.
In addition to civil rights cases, I also specialize in working with small businesses. Prior to becoming an attorney I owned and operated a nightclub in Hamtramck. This experience has led to a lifelong interest in the formation and operation of small businesses. My services are unique because I understand how small business owners need personal and affordable attention from their attorneys.
