About me

I was born in Detroit, and raised in southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio, before moving to the desert southwest after graduation from college. I traded winter gray skies, cold and snow for sunshine warmth and withering heat. I have lived in Arizona since 1976, and graduated law school in 1983. I am married with a beautiful wife and three handsome & intelligent sons.


When I and my staff are not working late evenings and weekends on clients' matters (which is way too often), I try to get away for camping and stream fishing for trout, or for traveling to new and interesting places. I also have an almost incurable inability to stop reading and talking with people, as I always want to better know and understand our world around us.
