I was raised in Escanaba. After law school, I worked as an attorney in Chicago. What I discovered was missing from my job there was the personal satisfaction of getting to know my clients by their first names: not just a last name on a file folder. I moved back to my hometown where I can see first hand how my representation has helped my clients in their daily lives. When someone first comes to see me, they have most likely been injured and are usually without income. This can be an extremely stressful time, so I give my clients helpful information, and I work hard to be their advocate. I assist my clients in obtaining wage loss benefits and medical benefits and get their lives back to where they were.
