About me

I have been in the legal industry for more than 26 years and I have used the years to gain as much knowledge as possible. I am active in my community, as I have served on the Jenison School Board for more than 24 years, and served as Chairman of the Jenison Memorial Day Parade for 10 years. 

I am also a member of the Michigan Bar Association, Kent County Bar Association, Ottawa County Bar Association, the Jenison Ambucs and the Jenison-Grandville Chamber of Commerce. I am also a former board member of the Ottawa County Bar Association. I have been a mediator in both Kent County and Ottawa County Circuit Courts for over 15 years. I am accredited with Martin Dale-Hubbell at the highest level throughout my career. 

I have used the years to utilize my knowledge and experience in order to help as many people as possible, and if you are in need of legal assistance, I hope to help you, too.
