Michigan Legislative Consultants

Throughout her career, Patti has been heavily involved in a range of topics; from education, to worker’s compensation, to auto insurance. She also worked on major issues impacting the state, such as the Detroit Grand Bargain, which brought the City of Detroit out of bankruptcy.

Working in different roles at the Michigan House of Representatives, she is well versed in committee and floor procedures, campaign and election law, and providing legal advice on all manners related to running a party caucus.

Each day, Patti brings that institutional knowledge to MLC to help our clients achieve their objectives.


Patti began her career working as part of the non-partisan staff at the Michigan House of Representatives. There, she advised representatives, staff, and the public on legislative processes and procedures, in addition to assisting floor and committee operations. She then moved into the role of policy analyst, specializing in regulatory reform, retirement policy, employment law, elections, and insurance.

Her last role within the Michigan House was general counsel for the House Democratic Caucus. In that role she was the lead attorney on all legal matters before the House and served as chief legal advisor to members, candidates, and staff on compliance of campaign finance and election laws.

Prior to joining MLC, she worked as director of government relations at the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Districts.
