A good lawyer knows when to go on the offensive and when it is prudent to play defense. They know when a case should settle and under what terms, and when it should be decided in a courtroom. They know the law, and they can break down, analyze and articulate complex issues both orally and in writing to a judge, a jury, and the client.

I am passionate about the law, and I understand that my clients expect a hard-working, competent lawyer who is focused on delivering results and capable of effectively advocating for their rights. I have a broad legal background, with experience in some of the most demanding and challenging cases. My commitment to my clients is to be accessible and responsive, and to handle each and every legal matter competently and diligently, in accordance with the highest standards of the profession.

While I originally hail from the Great Lakes State of Michigan, for the past decade my wife and I have called Rochester our home and this community our friends and neighbors.  Outside of the office, I spend as much time as I can with my wife, raising our three young boys. I also enjoy the occasional golf outing, ballgame, and outdoor sporting activities.
