OUR ATTORNEYS

T.L. Summerville
Managing Member

My practice focuses on business, commercial, and real estate matters covering entity formation, lending and real estate acquisition advice, contract drafting, and litigation. In my 20 years of practicing law, I have handled numerous breach of contract and business tort cases and negotiated contractual agreements for clients large and small. I have also represented major financial institutions in mortgage litigation actions, automotive manufacturers in products liability and premises liability cases, oil and gas producers in environmental disputes, and business owners in a variety of commercial matters. Since completing law school, I have worked as a criminal prosecutor in New York and Michigan, was a partner at a large Detroit law firm, and served as in-housel counsel for a Michigan-based bank.
