About me

JZ Law, home of the exclusive Flat Fee Guarantee, where in a lot of cases we can give your costs up front so you are not suprised later. JZ Law was established by Attorney Jannelle J. Zawaideh, a leading Michigan Family Law Attorney. We service residents in Oakland County, Livingston County, Macomb County, Wayne and Washtenaw County. Our practice is dedicated to providing you with the very best in legal advice with a highly professional standard of representation.


As a small very specialized law firm, we can guarantee your unique case will get the personal attention and commitment from one of our top Michigan Divorce Attorneys or Michigan Personal Injury Lawyers. Instead of being “lost in the shuffle” of a big law firm, at The Law Offices of Jannelle J. Zawaideh you get the personal, one-on-one attention only found at a small law firm. Instead of unreturned phone calls and hardly-seen lawyers, our Michigan Family Law Attorneys keep our clients well informed and up to date about the status of their case.


Not only will we tell you how your case is proceeding, we also take the time to educate our clients about the various aspects of the law as it relates to their case. Instead of just going on with what we say – we want our clients to be a partner and able to contribute to the important decisions that need to be made.


At The Law Offices of Jannelle J. Zawaideh, our philosophy to the practice of law is that informed and educated clients make better decisions on how to proceed with their cases.

    Ms. Zawaideh is not only a great attorney, but also an outstanding person. She has a unique skill that sets her apart from other great attorneys: she listens just as well as she speaks. Nothing escapes her. As a client, you will notice her focus and energy from your first meeting with her, and you will know that you hired the perfect attorney. I would sure want her on my team if I were ever in need of a family law attorney.
