Civil Litigation

As a Michigan civil litigation attorney, I have litigation experience in a wide range of Michigan state and federal trial and appellate courts. I also represent clients before administrative and government bodies, as well as in various kinds of alternative dispute proceedings such as mediation and arbitration. I have represented a wide variety of clients, including public corporations, privately held companies, family businesses, shareholders and business owners, and individuals.

My goal is to protect my clients' interests, and I work hard to reach a fair and equitable solution for each and every client who retains my services. I understand that clients do not enjoy the litigation process or expense, and I work hard to achieve a good solution for the client as soon as possible under the circumstances. My goal is to achieve and maintain a proactive stance throughout each litigation case I undertake.

My approach to my litigation cases focuses on innovative and aggressive strategies, combined with a commitment to pursue cost-effective services that help my clients meet their goals. I strive to handle each case on the most efficient and cost-effective basis possible, all in line with the client's objectives and the realities of the case.

I have almost 15 years of experience in representing clients in difficult and complex Michigan litigation cases and provide litigation and appellate representation on behalf of clients in a wide variety of Michigan civil litigation cases, including:

  • Business disputes
  • Business torts
  • Michigan sales commission disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Unfair business competition matters
  • Trade secrets, confidentiality agreements, and restrictive covenants
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Piercing the corporate veil cases
  • Collection cases
  • Bankruptcy adversary proceedings
  • Real estate disputes
  • Employment issues
  • Probate and estate litigation

At the beginning of each litigation case I undertake, I work with my client to develop realistic and legally sound litigation and goals and strategies for optimal resolution of the case. Once those goals and strategies are established, I work to achieve the best possible resolution of the case in line with the client's goals for the case.

Although I make every effort to settle my litigation cases whenever doing so is in a client's best interests, I will aggressively pursue and protect my clients' interests through litigation if settlement in not in their best interests.
