My background involves an exceptional variety of legal experiences, ranging from the world’s largest international law firm to the smallest — a solo small-town law practice. I also have worked within the courts, serving the public at large, and outside of the courts, serving private clients. My approach to family law reflects that variety of experiences. During and after attending the University of Michigan Law School, I had the privilege of serving in legal clerkships in the federal court and an international law firm based in Chicago– which was literally the largest law firm in the world at that time. I also briefly worked in an international law firm in London. These privileged vantage points provided insights in the workings of large law firms as well as litigation and business “deal making” experience. After the federal court clerkships, I started out as a corporate attorney for the State of Michigan’s then largest law firm. I worked on business and real estate deals for companies of all sizes—small, medium, and very large. After several years in that high-prestige, high-intensity law firm, I knew I wanted more flexibility and the opportunity to start a family. I shifted gears and went into the practice of law with my father, who had his own law office in the small town of Grand Blanc, Michigan, near Flint.
