Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
A client came in with a tax issue. The IRS had put a lien on their property, and was garnishing wages and tax returns. The IRS was claiming this client owed several thousand dollars, and were threatening to foreclose on their home. After dealing with the IRS, and having a hearing, the IRS has decided that this client is not liable for any of the taxes, and is going to return any money that has been paid toward this debt with interest.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
When shopping for an attorney, one should look for someone they feel they can trust, not only to work on their behalf, but that won’t beat around the bush with their case and the issues they are having. Additionally, you need to find an attorney that you will be able to get along with, and work with throughout the whole case. Some issues can last years, and so you will want to be comfortable with the attorney you choose to work with.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Free consultations will normally be limited to a short phone call in order to get a general idea about the issue you are having. This should allow the attorney to get an idea of the strength of your case, or the basis of your situation, in order to make the best determination for a strategy moving forward.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
It will be a discussion of the facts of the situation, and what an ideal outcome would be. The most important information is a strong understanding of the facts, and the ability to describe any evidence you have to support your side.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Other interests of mine include sports, and music. I am a big fan of my alma mater, Michigan State University, and watch whenever I get the opportunity. I also play a number of instruments, and like to play when I can.

  • Mys v Michigan Department of State Police
    A transfer to Detroit was widely seen as what happened to state troopers with disciplinary problems, so when Linda Mys got transferred from her post in Newaygo, Mich., to the Motor City, she saw it as retaliation. At the time, the 180-mile commute would’ve offered plenty of time for Mys to think about what prompted the transfer, and if it was retaliation for the sexual harassment investigation she initiated. A jury ultimately agreed with Mys and awarded the retired state trooper $350,000. On March 28 a federal appeals court upheld a the jury finding. Federal law prohibits employers from retaliating against an employee for communicating with a supervisor about alleged harassment. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lists transfer to a “less prestigious or desirable” work location as one example of possible retaliation if done in response to an employee’s protected activity. Mys’ case stemmed from what she told her department therapist, who she was seeing due to work-related stress. “During the session she said she had been sexually assaulted by a detective in her department,” Mys’ attorney, Collin H. Nyeholt, told Bloomberg Law. Unbeknownst to Mys, the psychologist was obligated to report the accusation, which led to an investigation. Had the investigation found evidence, “it would’ve led to a criminal charge” said Nyeholt. “There wasn’t enough to go forward, and she ended up working with the guy that she had accused,” Nyeholt added. The harassment allegedly continued after the investigation, but rather than addressing her complaint, Mys says she was relocated to a post three hours from her home. Mys initially sued in 2010, saying that the transfer was retaliation in violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. A federal jury sided with the Michigan State Police, but that verdict was ultimately overturned because evidence that would’ve been favorable to Mys wasn’t allowed to be heard at trial. The latest verdict was from an appeal by the state. “Today’s effort was an attempt by the state to argue that the jury finding was in error,” Nyeholt said, “but if there’s even a scintilla of evidence in favor of the plaintiff, the verdict is upheld. Here, there was more like an anvil.” Nyeholt is with the Law Offices of Casey D. Conklin. Though the case stretched on for nearly seven years, Nyeholt knows that the state still has options. “They can ask the appellate court to reconsider their finding, or take the case to the Supreme Court. I’m not sure what they’ll do,” he said.
