About me

I am married.  I have three children, ages 17, and twin boys who are 10.  I enjoy spending time with my family, and keeping in good physical condition.  I was born in Pontiac, Michigan and raised in
Clarkston, Michigan, where I attended and graduated from Holly Community Schools.

I went on to attend Central Michigan University where I excelled
in collegiate academics and football.  I am proud to be a member of a select group of
student athletes to have been named Mid American Conference, First Team
All-Academic. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, with a major in Journalism.

Then, I attended The Thomas E. Cooley Law School, located in
Lansing Michigan, graduating in 1991, and received the degree of Juris
Doctor.  I gained valuable practical legal experience while
attending Cooley and serving as a law clerk for the law firm of Church,
Kritselis, Wyble & Robinson (now known as Church Wyble, P.C.) a
successful Lansing Michigan Personal Injury and Municipal Law firm.

I have been licensed to practice law in the State of
Michigan from 1991 to the present, and have achieved
outstanding results for my clients in all areas of the law in which I practice.
