About me

Since graduating from the University of Michigan Law School 20 years ago,  I have had the privilege of representing  some of the finest businesses, municipalities, and individuals in Michigan.  From every case I have handled, I have learned more and more about resolving disputes for my clients either in  the courtroom or at the negotiation table.    I thrive on solving difficult issues whether through solid advice,  trial advocacy, mediation, or negotiation.
