What I Did This Summer

Now that the kids are back in school and lawyers are filings lawsuits again, thought I'd share the firm's highlights of the summer.

  • Successfully defeated a motion seeking a multi-million dollar judgment, ending the proceedings.

  • Successfully defeated a motion for summary disposition and, at the same hearing, winning a motion for summary disposition, eliminating over 10 claims.

  • Successfully defeated a motion to dismiss an eviction action (commercial property) on behalf of landlord and, after the hearing, obtaining a consent judgment.

  • Presented at the Real Property Law Section Summer Conference with Joe Wloszek of Hirzel Law (photo above) regarding Short Term Rentals (e.g., AirBnb): History, Recent Case Law, and Creative Argument

  • Served as a mediator in two matters.

  • Completed continuing education classes for my broker license.

  • Moved into a new office (same address, now on second floor).

  • Acquired the Oakland County Bar Association's conference room table (thanks again, OCBA!).

  • Recognized by Super Lawyers (Business Litigation) for a seventh consecutive year. Many thanks to my peers for voting for me.

Thanks to Derek Howard for serving as co-counsel on numerous matters (couldn't have done it without you).

Derek, Sara MacWilliams, and I are planning an office-warming party on October 3rd (5-7 p.m.). If you are interested in attending, please email me (
