About me

I'm a Michigan-licensed attorney who specializes in criminal defense and appellate practice. I represent individuals in Oakland, Macomb, and Ingham counties and I work with trial counsel across the state to prepare appeals in state or federal court. I believe that a strong defense is essential to an ordered system of justice and for the maintenance of liberty. 


I offer my clients the opportunity to meet with me via a video web-conference so that they don't even have to leave the comfort of their own home. Additionally, I offer my clients a web portal for their case file. This portal allows my clients and I to communicate, upload documents, and schedule appointments in a secure manner, similar to online banking. This portal helps to ensure my clients know exactly what is happening in their cases at any given time. 


When I'm not in court or working with my clients, I enjoy watching my Detroit sports teams or my Michigan State Spartans. I'm an outdoorsman who enjoys biking, hiking, and camping. I'm also a strong proponent of our state parks and wildlife conservation.
