Throughout my education and career my goal has been to help people through the sometimes turbulent and complicated legal process. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor and have strong ties to the community including longstanding relationships within our local court system. I enjoy the practice of law because it allows me to help people solve difficult situations through mediation or litigation. I have extensive expertise in financial issues in domestic matters including financial and debt issues, financial divisions including business divisions, retirement divisions and creative solutions to solve financial issues that arise in divorce and other debt matters. I also specialize in estate planning, general civil litigation including debt settlement and handle various real estate and criminal matters.
