- I have been in practice for over eighteen years, representing individuals and companies in litigation in all Michigan courts. I’m also admitted to practice in the federal courts for the Eastern and Western District of Michigan, and the United States Supreme Court. I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan and its Labor and Employment Law, Probate and Estate Planning and Litigation Sections. I am also a member of the American Bar Association, Labor and Employment Law Section.
- I’m an experienced estate planning attorney and lecture frequently in the Detroit area about creating an estate plan to meet my client’s needs. You are welcome to meet me at my next session or in our office for a private consultation.
- I have an extensive background in employment discrimination law, housing discrimination law, and business litigation. I regularly advise and counsel employers about workplace and employment issues, and act as corporate attorney for organizations that may not have the budget for in-house counsel.

Whether you’re an employer or an employee, if you have a question about the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, or some other employment statute, I can help you.
