About me

     I have known since a young age that I wanted to be an attorney.  I have always fought for what was right and was drawn to the ability to help people in a time of need.  I realize that my clients are real people with real problems, and not just a file folder.  I am committed to assisting my clients with their legal problems, whatever they may be.  I am a strong, skilled advocate for my client while utilizing my expertise and knowledge to provide practical advice to my clients for the best outcome based on all factors.  I am proud to provide legal services and representation in my hometown of Davison, as well as Genesee and surrounding counties and throughout Michigan.  

     I don’t consider being an attorney a job. It is an honor and an opportunity to serve my clients, the profession and my community. My goal is to provide each client with personalized representation and quality legal services designed to meet their individual needs

     Facing legal issues or problems can often be a very stressful and trying time.  Whatever your legal situation is, I am here to help you.  I have over 25 years of legal experience in most areas of law and combine that with compassion, dedication and personalized services to make you feel protected and give you peace of mind. Let me put your mind at ease.  I care about you and your legal needs.  You need someone you can rely on and trust.  Contact my office today to schedule a consultation.
