WHO AM I?
I was born, raised, and currently reside in Muskegon. I attended high school locally. I graduated from the University of Michigan, and then I attended and graduated from Wayne State University Law School.
I feel privileged to represent those who have been seriously injured and the families of those who have lost loved ones due to serious injury accidents. In my free time, I enjoy fishing, reading, and working out at Muskegon CrossFit.
EXPERT IN INJURY/WRONGFUL DEATH LAW
I have secured the largest auto accident injury verdict in Muskegon County history. I have also obtained verdicts on behalf of injured people in many counties throughout West Michigan and along the Lakeshore. I have secured settlements on behalf of clients of up to Fifteen Million Dollars. I have obtained multi-million dollar jury verdicts on behalf of my clients.
Most of the people I represent have been seriously injured or killed in car, motorcycle, and trucking accidents. I also spend a great deal of my time representing those who have been injured or killed due to bus accidents, dog bites, general negligence, slip and falls, boating accidents, medical malpractice, and civil rights/police misconduct.
