About me

I attended Grand Valley State University undergarduate school.  I attended University of Detroit-Mercy Law School.

While attending law school I worked in the prosecutors' office in Washtenaw County, (Ann Arbor, MI).  Most of my experience was in post-conviction appellate work.  Although, I also did work as a special investigator for the prosecutor.

Upon admission to the state bar I accepted a position with the Calhoun County Prosecutors' Office and worked as an assistant prosecutor from 1989 thru 1994.  While an assistant prosecutor I handled just about everything; warrant reviews, misdemeanor jury trials, felony motions, evidentiary hearings as well as jury trials and post-conviction appellate work.

From 1994 until the present I have been self-employed working for Ronald S. Pichlik, Attorney at Law, P.C.  I have been engaged almost exclusively in criminal defense trial work.  I have taken on post-conviction appellate matters as well petitions to expunge criminal histories.
