Born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan I am a proud graduate of Edsel Ford High School. Following receiving my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Southern California I returned home to attend Wayne State University Law School.
Practicing since 1982, I have handled criminal, drunk driving, traffic, landlord-tenant, probate, personal injury, contract, civil litigation, business, divorce, custody and support and real estate matters. As a practicing Associate Broker with Downriver Property Experts, LLC in Southgate, Michigan, I bring a unique perspective to real estate problems.
For nearly 20 years I handled the criminal defense and Small Claims Mediation Program in the 34th District Court in Romulus, Michigan. The last six years I, along with co-counsel, I have handled the criminal defense for those who could not afford their own attorneys in the 23rd District Court in Taylor, Michigan. For four years I have been the defense counsel representative to the Drug Court Program in that same court.
For over 16 years I have been a part-time Magistrate in the 24th District Court handling thousands of traffic cases, criminal arraignments and Small Claims hearings.
