I have been a licensed attorney for 25 years and a certified public accountant for 17 years. I have focused my career on estate planning and tax issues, working at both a law firm and a “Big Four” national accounting firm. In 2008, I started my own law firm because I believed that high quality estate planning services should not just be available to the wealthy. Since then, I have assisted hundreds of people with their estate planning services, providing everything from simple wills to specialized trusts.
As a certified public accountant, I offer the added benefit of understanding the tax implications and complexities of trust and estate decisions. That allows my clients to make the best-informed decisions and obtain the highest value for their money. I am my law firm so, if you make an appointment, you can be sure that I will meet with you, bring my knowledge and experience to answer your questions, and recommend estate planning suited to your needs and circumstances.
I was born and raised in the Detroit area. I graduated from University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) in 1988, and, after completing my three years of law school at Boston University in 1993, returned to Michigan. I’ve lived in Novi for over 20 years with my wife and three children and maintained my office in Northville since founding my law firm.
