About me

I focus  my practice on general civil and commercial litigation.  I have successfully litigated numerous contractual and business disputes and have significant experience in the litigation of complex shareholder/member disputes.  In addition, my experience includes the litigation of major personal injury actions. I practice in both state and federal courts throughout Michigan.
