I have been a lifelong resident of West Michigan. I graduated from Hudsonville High School in 1993. I went on to Grand Valley State University where I earned two Bachelor degrees: Political Science and Legal Studies. While attending GVSU, I served on the Student Senate, wrote for the school newspaper “The Lanthorn” and made the Dean’s list on a regular basis. Seeing so many injustices within our political and justice systems, I took my passion and went on to one of the most popular Law School’s in the United States: Thomas M. Cooley Law School. At law school, I received an Honor’s scholarship, and a Certification in Litigation. I also made the Dean’s list numerous times and was actively involved in many student activities.
I have honed my legal skills at a local prosecutor’s office, a high-profile West Michigan law firms and from handling hundreds of criminal cases. I believe in treating my clients with respect and dignity. I will fight for my client’s rights all the time! I am dedicated to providing my clients with aggressive and affordable representation in all criminal matters. My legal skills have been proven in court, where I have an excellent track record in criminal jury trials.
I am a contrarian by nature and enjoy taking on the Government. I have a healthy skepticism of law enforcement and the police department. This will be evident should I cross examine the cop that arrested you or that raided your house.
I live with my wife in Allendale, Michigan. We love to follow the Detroit Tigers and Lions. We also enjoy fishing and Michigan’s great lakes.
I am a sincere attorney who really cares and spends time on his client's issues. I can handle all criminal matters and I can save you a lot of money when you are facing owi/dui or any other criminal charges. My rates won't make you serve a life sentence of debt!
My initial consultation is totally free! I will personally handle your case from start to finish. Call me now at 616-438-6719!
I look forward to talking to you personally about your case and helping you out during this difficult time in your life!
