Ann Arbor, Michigan

Have you or a loved one been charged with a crime? Do you think you might be? Do you fear incarceration, losing your job, losing your educational opportunities, or losing your driver's license? I understand that every case is unique, as is every client. As one of only two area criminal defense attorneys who worked at the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office within the last 15 years, I bring comprehensive understanding and experience to each of my clients' cases.

I have the experience and know-how to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and to give you a full appraisal of what you are facing. If trial is appropriate, I will be well-prepared to fight the government's case, and to provide you the best defense available. If settlement is in your interests, I know how to negotiate a favorable plea that minimizes the consequences.

I handle cases in Washtenaw and Livingston counties, in Michigan.  I also cover but not limited to the surrounding counties of Genesee, Wayne, Monroe, Lenawee, Hillsdale, Jackson, Ingham, Shiawassee, and Oakland,

My goal for each client is to bring peace of mind, and to safeguard what matters most.
