John was competent & professional consulting with me over the phone at no charge. He answered most of my concerns. His rate and retainer is on the high end but promised to complete the divorce process speedily and within the budget. I pray for the best. ThanksMar 22, 2016Verified
He handled my divorce smoothly, and he promptly replied to all calls, emails, and texts. He knows the law and explains it well. He got me a good settlement and resolved all the issues with retirement benefits. James A.Oct 21, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Divorce case are so different from each other that I cannot quote a fee until I hear the facts first. Even then, I handle most cases on an hourly basis. I do quote flat fees for very simple cases.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I try to get get all the relevant facts, so that I can analyze the case. Next, I find out what the client's goals are. Sometimes, those goals are different from what I would have expected. I want to put the most emphasis on the things that are most important to the particular client. And, of course, I explain what the procedure will be and how long I expect this to take, as well as the probable outcome. I give my clients my email address and my cell phone so that they can call or text me and get in touch with me easily.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My law degree is from The University of Detroit Law School (1979). I attend regular legal seminars to make sure that I am keeping current on all relevant changes in the law. I also read the Family Law Bar Journal each month and also participate in the Michigan Family Law Listserv. And, of course, on a daily basis, I read all the new family law decisions coming from the Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court.
