After working as a police officer for 22 years I am now using the skills and knowledge learned during my law enforcement career as the backbone of my criminal defense practice. My experience as a road patrol officer, detective sergeant, and administrative lieutenant, allow me to read between the lines of all police reports and investigations while preparing the best possible defense for my clients. My police experience, including testifying on the stand over a thousand times on cases ranging from simple assaults to murder, has allowed me to gain the respect of area judges, prosecutors and fellow defense attorneys.
I am honored to serve as local counsel for those attorneys from different states who are in need of assistance from an attorney in the metro Detroit area. I am a member of the State Bar of Michigan and the Macomb County Bar Association, and I am admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. My criminal practice includes the following areas of law:
- Criminal and juvenile law
- Drunk driving - OWI/DUI
- Drivers' license restoration
- Traffic offenses
- Drug crimes
- Domestic violence/assault and battery
- Sex crimes
- Violent crimes
In addition to criminal law my practice also focuses on divorce, child custody and support, spousal support, and other areas of family law. I have personally gone through the divorce process with children and understand the needs and emotional effect of those seeking assistance.
