About Me

Throughout my career, my practice has been focused on serving clients with small business, estate planning, probate and real estate needs. I have also practiced in the public utility area, working on public offerings of securities as well as electric rate cases and co-generation matters before the Michigan Public Service Commission. In working with clients, my primary concerns are to be sure that I fully understand their needs and that their objectives are clearly and effectively expressed in business negotiations, agreements and estate planning documents. I have completed the Michigan Institute of Continuing Legal Education Estate Planning Certification Program and frequently serve as a commentator for its estate planning seminars. I also have taught an advanced estate planning course for the American Society of Chartered Life Underwriters. For over 10 years, I have been listed in the “Best Lawyers in America”.
