About me

I've practiced law in Flint for more than 30 years and in the same location for the last 18 years.  When you hire me, you'll deal directly with me; your case will never be handed off to an associate, or farmed out to another law firm.  I believe that the practice of law is a hands-on endeavor, and in order to stay accessible to my clients, I typically answer my own phones, schedule my own appointments, and meet face-to-face with clients as often as necessary. 


Every case presents a unique set of circumstances,  and I consider it essential to my job to enable my clients to not only know how their case will proceed, but to understand why things are the way they are in the court system.  Whenever a pivotal choice must be made, I will make sure that the client understands all of the options and the pros and cons of each one. 


In the era of financial distress, I am well aware that few of my clients can afford to pay the top dollar for legal services.  I  work closely with clients to enable their limited funds to be used effectively and economically.  For those with difficult work schedules, I am available for client meetings on Saturdays.


Many lawyers gain new clients with grandiose promises of what they can accomplish that fly in the face of reality.  In contrast, I won't accept a case if it appears that the client's goals and objectives are unrealistic and their money would be wasted pursuing them.  I believe in providing clients with a candid assessment of their situation, whether or not they like what they hear.
