How do you help businesses and individuals?
I help public and private organizations and individuals resolve litigation issues at all levels of the state and federal courts as well as the appellate courts, including the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. My appellate practice focuses on all phases of the appeal process including drafting appellate briefs and motions, oral argument, trial preservation, jury instruction and case management.
As a trial attorney specializing in insurance defense, I represent organizations in a wide variety of coverage situations, including environmental, health care matters, automobile negligence first and third-party situations, premises and products liability actions, and employment related injuries.
What skills help you advise the client and achieve the best results or outcomes?
As an appellate attorney with over 100 appeal cases since 1999, I approach and advise on all active cases with a broader global perspective. I skillfully counsel clients on how to best identify and prevent error in the event of an appeal and offer a unique technical focus on the legal requirements.
