“Success for you is our job.”
We know how important your job and career are to you. When they have been taken away, you want someone by your side who shares that concern and recognizes that providing a remedy for that wrong will affect the way you live the rest of your life. As a lawyer, I have been committed to that fight for more than 30 years.
Representing cities and townships is both challenging and rewarding. When you think of the hundreds of services a community provides to its citizens, the range of subjects requiring legal knowledge is staggering. That knowledge only comes from years of experience, which in our case is more than 30 years of working with municipalities big and small.
I joined Gasiorek, Morgan, Greco, McCauley & Kotzian, PC as an Associate, in September 2013 after maintaining my own practice for several years. I have been a trial attorney since 2008, and have served as the prosecuting attorney for Van Buren Township, prosecuting misdemeanor criminal offenses and ordinance infractions in the 34th District Court since 2012.
To an individual employee, an employment relationship is typically his or her most important business relationship. To an employer, employment relationships are crucial to continuing operation of the business. The termination of an employment relationship can be one of the most upsetting events in an individual's life. My role is to attempt to avoid these upsetting scenarios.
In order for a business to run successfully, employees and their employer should have an amicable and mutually beneficial relationship. But when problems in the workplace do arise, it’s best to go to an experienced attorney who can help resolve these issues. I represent clients in all forms of employment law cases, including discrimination, whistleblower protection, and wrongful termination.
Raymond J. Carey
Ray Carey routinely and effectively represents employees who have experienced wrongful or discriminatory treatment and harassment at their places of work, by their employers, managers or coworkers; employees who have been wrongfully terminated for discriminatory and retaliatory reasons; employees whose employers attempt to enforce restrictive terms of employment; and employees from whom employers seek signed releases in consideration for severance benefits.
I am a founding partner of Gasiorek, Morgan, Greco, McCauley & Kotzian, P.C. concentrating in Employment and Municipal Law. I been a trial lawyer since 1995, representing clients in all levels of the court system in the State of Michigan, ranging from the local District Courts to the Michigan Supreme Court and the United States Federal Courts.

A trial lawyer since 1973, I have focused my practice on serious personal injury litigation, particularly wrongful death and medical malpractice. I have recovered more than $20 million in settlements or verdicts for clients. Prior to joining GMGMK in 2010, I spent three decades with Michigan's largest plaintiff's litigation firm, where I also served as managing partner for several years.
