Growing up in Michigan, I always felt like I identified with the individuals who were labeled the underdog. I've always had a strong desire to help those in need, and defend those who may not be able to defend themselves. I also grew up with a strong interest and passion for the law, specifically because there was such a redeeming quality about a profession that worked to restore order and justice in society — essentially leveling the playing field for all of the underdogs out there.
When I decided to attend college at Michigan State University, I decided to study business and pre-law. Originally I thought that I might want to go into business for myself, but after taking a few pre-law classes, I quickly realized that going into the law profession would offer me the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. After graduating from Michigan State University in 2007, I was quickly accepted into the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. It was there that I learned the importance of hard work, and how a commitment to learning the law could prove to be a valuable asset that could help me better serve my community.
I believe that every victim deserves to have their case heard. My job is to build you a strong offense so your story can be heard and together, we can seek the justice you deserve.
