I am both an attorney and a counselor for my clients. I analyze the facts of your situation, usually during an in person interview. I review your documentation. I counsel my clients to take the best course of action to maximize their results. I negotiate on behalf of my clients. I investigate and obtain documentation of their claims and the facts surrounding their claims. I advocate on behalf of my clients, whether in private negotiations or in the courtroom.
I am a licensed attorney with over 35 years of experience. My peers have given me the highest possible rating for legal competence and legal ethics. My legal career began at Carson, Fischer & Potts where I worked on real estate syndications, business transactions and pensions. I moved on to work with Hertzberg & Golden, specializing in litigation in the civil courts and in bankruptcy court. In 1990, I started my own firm. I continued to devote a large part of my practice to litigation. My expertise has been recognized in the areas of divorce, custody, support and parenting time disputes. Based upon my background, I also maintain a business practice which includes real estate, collections, and litigation. I was the Chair of the General Practice – Solo and Small Firm Section of the State Bar of Michigan from 2010- 2012. I was the Program Chair, providing continuing legal education programs to the Section from 2013 – 2016.
Through my years of experience I can provide you with honest, direct answers to your legal questions. Do you have a valid claim? What is the most cost effective way to enforce your rights? If you have to litigate, what can you expect? I have also formed many valuable associations with other attorneys who specialize in areas of the law I do not. If I don’t know the answer to your questions, I can direct you to an attorney who specializes in that area. My goal is to have a happy, well informed client.
