Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    I was a Washtenaw County Public Defender from 1980 through 1997. I have been in private practice since then. I have done hundreds of felony cases including a number of murder cases in my career. In addition I have done too many misdemeanor cases to count. I practice in both state and federal courts. One recent focus of my practice has been firearms law and weapons cases generally.

    46 years

  2. Family
    Divorce and custody cases.

    46 years

  3. Juvenile law
    I have an extensive background in both Delinquency and Neglect cases representing both parents and children in courts throughout the state of Michigan.

    46 years

I am an experienced attorney with a philosophy that unless an agreement is reached which is beneficial to the client, I always take the case to trial. Because of my willingness to try cases, combined with a non-offensive approach, I often find that I can achieve my client's goals without a trial.
