Family Law Services


Michigan family law is complex and constantly changing. A truly capable family lawyer works within the system on a daily basis, keeping pace with new laws and regulations while maintaining relationships with all the players who can impact family law cases – social workers, adoption agencies, Friend of the Court personnel, and more.

At the same time, your family practice lawyer should possess a scope of knowledge beyond divorce, custody and financial support issues. Effective representation requires understanding of tax law, business law, trusts and estates.
