John H. Gretzinger

Attorney, Of Counsel Grand Rapids, MI

For over 40 years, I have been providing labor and employment advice to employers. Every business has strategic employment goals, and I help businesses reach them by providing consultation and guidance regarding strategies that comply with legal requirements.

As someone with an affinity for warm weather, technology advances allow me to spend time golfing in Florida in the winter and sailing in Michigan in the summer, while being able to address client needs without missing a beat.
