I have a general litigation practice, focusing on business litigation and disputes, real estate cases, and trust and probate litigation.
My practice is based in the Detroit, Michigan suburb of Bloomfield Hills. Given my location, I work with clients mostly in the Metro Detroit area (Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb Counties).
In addition to my representation of clients in Metro Detroit, Michigan, I have represented clients in many locations throughout the State of Michigan, as well as in a number of other jurisdictions such as California, Delaware, Florida, Ohio, Washington, D.C., and even the Caribbean.
My unique background and business and practical experiences allow me to bring a fresh perspective to my clients’ cases.
I belong to the State Bar of Michigan, the Federal Bar Association, the Detroit Bar Association, and the Oakland County Bar Association. I am licensed to practice in all of Michigan’s state and federal courts and am also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court and the federal Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I received my law degree from Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Michigan. While in law school, I was a published member of the Wayne Law Review, and also served as that journal’s Executive Articles Editor.
