Would you like to contact me to discuss a legal issue, or perhaps to ask about retaining my services?  Here’s a little more background information about me and a few things to consider before you write.

I am a commercial litigator admitted to practice in the State of Michigan and several federal courts across the country.  I’m a partner at the law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP.  Warner has several offices throughout Michigan, but we represent clients nationwide and around the world.  Ours is a full-service firm with large practice groups serving a wide variety of business needs, including intellectual property, immigration, and corporate law (just to name a few).  You can visit Warner’s website for more information.

I was admitted to practice law in 1999, after graduating second in my class from Case Western University School of Law and serving as a law clerk to the Hon. Alice M. Batchelder of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  I practiced at the law firm of Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP from 2000-2016, after which I moved my practice to Warner. I have been privileged to work with a wide variety of learned colleagues and interesting clients throughout my career.  You can read my full professional bio here.
