What are your current work responsibilities?
I am a Shareholder in the Grand Rapids, Michigan office of Foster Swift. My focus is within the firm's Commercial Litigation practice group, specifically in the areas of business and contract disputes, real estate litigation, construction litigation, employment litigation, and criminal law. However, I partner with many clients in providing legal solutions for a broad array of corporate and personal matters.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?
Helping both corporate and personal clients find solutions to their problems, and learning about their industries along the way.

Were there certain experiences at MSU Law that helped you prepare for or obtain your current position?
MSU Law's Trial Advocacy and Legal Clinic programs. The MSU Trial Advocacy program taught me how to be a litigator, and the Housing Law Clinic gave me real world practical litigation experience. That combination has been invaluable.

What would you consider to be the strengths of the Law College?
Clinical programs; sense of community within the Law College; access to professors and administration; extracurricular learning opportunities; career support services.

Is there any additional insight you would like to share?
There is a difference between learning the law, and learning how to become a lawyer. MSU College of Law, although strong in both categories, will prepare you to be an effective and successful lawyer.
