About John

During my legal career of 39 years, I have focused on family law and other complex civil litigation matters. I have served by Court appointment as a mediator, arbitrator, facilitator, receiver and special master. For the past twenty years I have achieved an "AV" rating, the highest peer rating by Martindale Hubbell, a nationally recognized directory of attorneys, for my legal ability and ethical standards. I have appeared in state and federal courts throughout Michigan and have argued in the Michigan Court of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. My professional memberships include the American Bar Association, State Bar of Michigan and Oakland County Bar Association. ABA section memberships incude family law, business law and litigation. I am an arbitrator for the American Bar Association. I am a member of the Financial and Estate Planning Council of Metro Detroit as well as the Federal Law Clerk Alumni Group. I am a past chairman of the Oakland County Bar Association's Circuit Court Committee. I am also a member of the City of Birmingham Board of Ethics, Grand Knight of the Holy Name Knights of Columbus, Director of the Birmingham Rotary, among other volunteer positions. I have served on the Board of Directors of the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit, and have been past chair of both the Board of Managers of the Birmingham YMCA and the City of Birmingham Advisory Parking Committee. I was recognized in the dbusiness magazine as a Top Lawyer in Metropolitan Detroit in the practice areas of family law, litigation and corporate law, as well as a Leading Lawyer in Family Law. I recently received this year's Michigan Top 10 Attorney Awards from both the Natiional Academy of Family Law Attorneys and the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys. I was also named in Michigan Lawyer Weekly's "Leaders in the Law" for 2016. I was the recipient of the Federal Bar Foundation Edward Rakow Scholarship Award at the Detroit College of Law, where I was the Editor-in-Chief of the Detroit College of Law Review. I also served as Law Clerk to the Honorable Harold H. Bobier, Judge of the U.S. District Court in Bankruptcy for the Eastern District of Michigan.
