I have a general practice of law that primarily involves trial practice for criminal, family, and probate matters throughout West Michigan. Because of the probate interest, I also am involved in Wills, Trusts, and other estate-planning devices. This often ties in with post-divorce planning.
My entire career has been involved with legal matters - as an investigative journalist in Chicago and West Michigan, as an assistant prosecutor, and in private practice. I believe in hard work, digging for answers, and the relentless pursuit of what's right.
My education came at Quincy University (BA), the University of Oklahoma (MA), and Cooley Law School (JD). I've also had benefit of numberous seminars such as a Knight Fellowship at the Universit of Maryland and a National Security Seminar at the U.S. Army War College.
In my private life, I'm married to Pat, a high school teacher, and we have five adult children.
