VOTED #1 LAW FIRM IN IONIA COUNTY - 2016 AND 2017 PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS - Ionia Sentinel Standard
As of August 31, 2018, I had to close my law practice due to being hired by Ionia County to serve as its Chief Public Defender. I will be unable to continue representing clients on other legal matters. I recommend that you immediately hire another attorney to handle your case for you. You can select any attorney you wish, or I would be happy to provide you with a list of local attorneys who practice in the area of law relevant to your legal needs. In addition, the State Bar of Michigan provides a Lawyer Referral Service that can be reached at (800)-968-0738. You may also want to check with one of the several local bar associations providing lawyer referral services.
THANK YOU to all of my clients over the past 26 years for making my law practice successful and enjoyable to come into the office everyday and provide my clients with legal services. It has been a pleasure to serve the Ionia community for so many years. I look forward to the next chapter in my legal career working for Ionia County to ensure that our indigent defendants charged with criminal offenses are provided quality legal representation. The phone number at the Ionia County Public Defender Office is (616) 527-8242.
