Real Criminal Defense Experience in Michigan

I have tried cases to juries from East Lansing to Downriver and from Pontiac to Jackson.

Based in Ann Arbor, I have defended against felonies and misdemeanors in 13 circuit courts and 39 district courts.


Never Been a Prosecutor

Many criminal defense attorneys advertise their past as prosecutors. The message from former prosecutors is they know the system well because they were a part of the system.

I advertise in the opposite way – I have never been a prosecutor. From the start I have been on your side and never a part of the system that is now against you.

Commitment to Improvement

Each year I spend over a hundred hours in seminars and courses on trial skills, DUI defense, and criminal law topics. I am a graduate of the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan Trial College.
