I am a graduate of the Michigan Law School, JD '83 and the U of M business school, BBA '80. Best thing I got in Ann Arbor was my bride Rachel. We married in '84 and have raised 4 now adult children together. My father was a lawyer and we moved to Boyne City in 1961 from Detroit. I am a member of the Walloon Lake Community Church and have served there as board chairman since 1998. I coached baseball, softball and basketball for many years mostly so I could hang around my kids as they grew up. I serve on the attorney grievance commission for northern Michigan and am currently the Representative Assembly member representing all lawyers in Charlevoix county to the state bar. I have been a "small town lawyer" since 1983, and can help with essentially all your legal needs.
