Experience

After graduating from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Keith relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, where for seven years, he owned and operated a corporate fitness and cardiac rehabilitation business.  He experienced first hand many of the challenges that face business owners on a daily basis.  Through this, he gained a strong appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit that drives business owners.  Keith uses the perspective he gained as a small business owner to offer clients sound, practical legal and business advice.
