Practice areas

I was born and raised in the Metro Detroit area. A Tartar (now a Warrior) through and through,  I earned both my undergraduate and law degrees from Wayne State University. After earning my Juris Doctor,  I began my legal career working for a small personal injury firm, and it was there that I cultivated my interest in medical malpractice litigation.   With the exception of a year spent working in the Pre-Hearing division of the Michigan Court of Appeals, I have dedicated my entire legal career to representing clients with medical malpractice and personal injury claims at both the trial and the appellate levels. 

I currently focuses my practice on appeals.  As part of my appellate work, I prepares and argues cases before various State and Federal Appellate Courts.  However, because an appellate attorney’s job is to keep his/her clients out of the appellate courts, I also spends a significant amount of her time briefing, and in some cases, arguing key legal issues before the trial court.   Although most of my appellate work continues to be in the area of medical malpractice and personal injury litigation, I have also worked on employment and rail road cases  since I began working with the wonderful attorneys at Sommers Schwartz.
