A Full-Service Law Practice Focused on Litigation, Business Law, Real Estate Law, and Personal Legal Services
I am a Michigan attorney, with a general practice focused on litigation, business law, real estate law, and personal legal services. I have over 15 years of experience in helping clients with a wide variety of legal matters.
I was born and raised in Michigan, attended college in West Michigan and law school in Detroit, Michigan. I have represented clients throughout the State of Michigan during my career. My clients have included individuals, small businesses, large companies, and even large international law firms that needed assistance with local Michigan matters.
A large part of my practice is devoted to representing clients in Michigan civil litigation cases. Most of my civil litigation cases involve business or real estate disputes. This means I am a Michigan business lawyer who helps my clients resolve business and real estate disputes in Michigan state and federal courts, and in alternative dispute resolution venues such as mediation, facilitation, and arbitration.
My civil litigation cases include general business and commercial disputes, breach of contract cases, business torts, trade secret and non-compete litigation, temporary and preliminary injunction proceedings, Michigan sales commission disputes, collection cases, employment law cases, real estate disputes, trust, estate and probate litigation, and many other kinds of legal disputes.
I represent litigation clients primarily in the Metro Detroit area, and am very familiar with the Circuit Courts in Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, and Washtenaw Counties. In particular, I regularly represent clients in the specialized Michigan business court dockets in Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb Counties. I also have significant experience representing clients in both the Eastern and Western Federal District Courts in Michigan, as well as in the Federal Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Business and Real Estate Transactions
In addition to my litigation practice, I provide legal representation to clients in a wide variety of business and real estate transactions.
I represent business start-ups in the beginning stages of their ventures, and help them resolve all kinds of legal issues related to growing a business. For example, I help business clients set up Michigan corporations and limited liability companies (LLC's) and provide them with guidance through the often confusing maze of issues faced when starting a business in Michigan.
I also offer legal services to established business clients. I counsel business clients on general contract issues, employment law matters, non-compete agreements, franchise matters, real estate purchases, leases and contracts, as well as many other kinds of business transactions and agreements.
My goal in representing clients in business and real estate transactions is to help them facilitate and achieve their goals on the best terms and in the most cost effective manner possible under the circumstances.
Personal Legal Services
In addition to my civil litigation, business law, and real estate law services, I also provide clients with personal legal services such as estate planning, probate administration, and representation in family law matters.
These sorts of cases are of the utmost importance to clients because they have a direct impact on their lives and the lives of their family members. I work diligently to provide my clients with the peace of mind they seek to achieve in these types cases, whether through the preparation of estate planning documents, helping to settle a loved one's probate estate, or helping to resolve a difficult family issue.
Focused on Helping Clients Achieve Their Goals
As a Michigan attorney, I understand that clients come to me to help them solve their problems and get results. My goal is to provide each of my clients with the highest quality, specialized representation possible. I focus all of my efforts on working with my clients to achieve the results they seek.
