I have extensive experience in criminal law, civil litigation, governmental regulation for county, township, and village issues. I have viewed legal problems from the point of view of individuals and companies I have represented, from the view of a prosecutor, and from the view of the judge. I have 40 years of experience advising county, township, village governmental units, individuals and corporations. My private practice is centered on solving legal problems for people. I have been elected Prosecuting Attorney twice, serving 1981-1988 and elected Municipal Court Judge serving 2011-2015.
