About me

A new paradigm is needed for the way family law is practiced in Michigan, and Becker Legal, P.C. is leading the way.


            Divorce is a life-changing event.  Becker Legal offers a better way to end a marriage through specialized advanced training in Collaborative Divorce.  This groundbreaking method revolutionizes the way couples divorce.  It addresses your legal, financial, and emotional needs and achieves the best family arrangement possible.  Families at war produce only losers and no winners.  This exciting new process empowers you – not lawyers or a judge – to shape the outcome of your divorce.


            “I focus on clients’ long-term interests, not their short-term anger,” says Lori D. Becker, attorney and mediator, who founded her own family law firm in 2002.  “Each case is unique, so as a divorce lawyer, I examine the family’s specific needs and tailor my service to them.  My advanced training in Collaborative Divorce allows me to take this to a whole new level.”
