David W. Brown

Attorney at Law

I first got my start at a law firm with several associates, during which I founded their bankruptcy department. I was an accountant before going to law school so numbers came easily to me. Knowing I could give my clients more thoughtful guidance, I opened up my law firm in 2002. Eventually, Mark and Christopher joined my offices, strengthening our ability to give our clients positive results.


Mark Scully

Attorney at Law

I graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing in 1985. Since then, I have grown my knowledge of law phenomenally, especially within family law, criminal defense, and bankruptcy law. I am passionate about helping people through difficult times and being the one person they can rely on to find solutions that are tailored just for them and their unique situation.
