I graduated from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School while working full-time. While in school, I focused much of my studies on Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, Estate Administration, Probate Administration and Criminal Law. I later served my community for six years as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for the County of Oakland. I am admitted to the State Bar of Michigan and I hold a certificate of completion in the areas of Probate and Estate Planning issued by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education and the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan. I served in the U.S. Marine Corps and am an active veteran member of The American Legion, Post 346, and have held various leadership positions in my church.
