Why did you become an attorney?
From the time I was 8 years old becoming an attorney was the only career I wanted. I worked hard, graduating from law school at the early age of 24 to realize this lifelong goal.
What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
Just the magnitude and wide array of cases I not only handle on a daily basis, but that I have also tried is invaluable. The healthy relationships and dealings with judges across Michigan in federal, state, and appellate courts have also been helpful.
What made you choose your primary specialty focus of law?
I did not want to practice in just one or two areas and "specialize." Much like the judges cases are heard in front of, a good and intelligent attorney can "specialize" in countless areas by hard work and continued exposure to all types of cases.
What makes your law firm unique?
The reputation my firm and I have with the judges I appear before, and attorneys I go against. Also the wide array of cases my firm handles with great effectiveness provides various services to many different clients in need.
Describe your ideal client.
One that works with me to put together the best possible investigation, preparation, evidence and case to go to the jury/judge we are before.
Describe your personal interest and hobbies.
I have a wonderful wife and 3 beautiful children that keep me busy, having coached their sporting activities for many years. I also served as an NFL agent for several years to utilize my law degree, together with my passion for sports.
Describe your charitable activities.
Providing legal pro bono work at times for clients in need, donating items and services to foster care organizations, as well as groups for the needy or abused.
