also known as Jennifer Coles, Coles Law PLLC

About Me

I attended Michigan State University from 1986-1990 and earned a bachelor of arts degree in accounting. I then went on to obtain my law degree in 1993 from Indiana University (ranked among the top 20 law schools in the country). After graduating, I moved to Grand Rapids and have been practicing law there for over 20 years. I enjoy sail boat racing, traveling and arts and crafts.

    Jennifer and I work in some of the same areas of the law and I have had the privilege of both reviewing her answers on Avvo and discussing matters with her by phone. I have found Jennifer's answers to be spot-on, in terms of the law. Her experience and her genuine concern for her clients are very admirable. I have no hesitation in endorsing Jennifer and her services. James Frederick
