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 prepared to fight the government's case and to provide you with an effective defense. If settlement is in your interests, I know how to negotiate a favorable plea that minimizes the consequences.
With offices in Ann Arbor and Brighton, I handle cases in Michigan's Washtenaw and Livingston counties. My goal for each client is to bring peace of mind and to safeguard what matters most.
