Personalized Legal Help

When you are faced with legal issues, it's personal to you. Your lawyer should not lose sight of that personal element.

I have been a lawyer for more than 30 years and have had experience in a broad range of legal issues, but I believe that no two clients are the same and no two cases are exactly alike. With that in mind, I meet with all my clients in person to learn about them, their legal situations and their goals. Together, we work on strategies and develop plans that are tailored for their exact needs.

My office is in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and I have deep ties in the community of the eastern Upper Peninsula.

Criminal Defense

The cornerstone of our criminal justice system is the concept that everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Unfortunately, the system doesn't always live up to its lofty ideas, and it's easy for people to get overwhelmed after they have been accused of a crime. Help from an experienced criminal defense attorney can make a big difference.

Earlier in my career, I worked as a prosecutor, but I switched to criminal defense because I wanted to make a bigger difference in people's lives.

Today, I defend the rights and protect the futures of people who have been accused of crimes such as DUI, theft, assault and more. I have experience in both state and federal courts and represent clients on appeal. I also help clients with post-conviction matters such as expungement to protect their futures.

Personal Injury And Social Security

An injury can affect your life in ways you might not have expected. In addition to pain and suffering, you and your family will face medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and other damages.

I help the injured and their families recover the compensation they deserve after accidents caused by others' negligence. I also help the injured get the Social Security Disability benefits they need after an injury or illness has made it impossible for them to earn a living.
