“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm."
After graduating from college and working for a trucking company as a dock foreman I spent three years in the Army. After I discharged, I went to law school; an idea that had always been in the back of my mind. In short order, I married had two children and worked in the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office as an assistant prosecutor. There I gained experience and had the satisfaction of prosecuting individuals who hurt people. Eventually, I wanted to expand my legal horizons, so I went into private practice as a general practitioner. The emphasis of my practice changed to divorce, custody and support issues and probate law.
As a former prosecutor, I thought nothing could be as tough as prosecuting a murder trial. I was wrong. Divorce cases and other cases with issues such as custody, alimony, pensions and contested wills, were every bit as tough as a criminal trial and they often last much longer. Nevertheless, it is satisfying to resolve a custody issue, so it protects the best interest of a child; or a divorce case that fairly handles issues regarding property, businesses, support, or retirement benefits.
I have had the pleasure of representing hundreds of people in divorce and custody cases with as well as handling many cases involving Wills and Trusts and criminal cases.
I am a well-rounded attorney with an emphasis on service to the client and solving the problems which keep you up at night.
Outside of work I like to keep in shape by walking the dogs, jogging, or going to the gym where I play squash.
