I focus on a progressive, client-focused approach. Your fees are devoted to positive problem-solving -- avoiding the expense of adversarial litigation whenever reasonably possible. I am interested in seeing this approach cultivated within the ranks of our newest attorneys as well. I will be presenting at a "Breakfast Basics" seminar focusing on Alternative Fee Arrangements, which is cosponsored by ICLE and the Young Lawyers Section of the State Bar of Michigan on Tuesday, May 23rd in Detroit. I will address options for flat fee services within the practice of family law.
