  • Steven D. Reinheimer

    I have the privilege of serving with Matt on the council for the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan. His positions on matters that have come before the council are valid and well-reasoned. His knowledge of the law is such that I often seek out his opinion on complex issues. His passion for the practice of law (and for life!) is beyond compare.
