I have been practicing exclusively in the area of plaintiff personal injury since 1990 and have handled thousands of cases for my clients over the past 24 years. I have been designated a Michigan Super Lawyer in the field of plaintiff personal injury for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. Several of my settlements and verdicts have been published in the Michigan Lawyers Weekly including the annual Million Dollar Verdicts and Settlements for 2007, 2008 and 2013. I handle all types of injury claims with an emphasis on wrongful death, medical malpractice, and automobile negligence cases. I also litigate Social Security Disability cases as well as Insurance dispute claims including denial of No Fault Personal Injury Protection Benefits (1st Party), and Life Insurance/Disability Benefits contract dispute matters. I am available for a free consultation concerning any personal injury matter and all cases that I accept are done on a contingency fee basis.
