About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.


I have been practicing law and specializing in divorce and family law for more than twenty years.  I am a graduate of the Detroit College of Law and member of the State Bar of Michigan.  My specialty, family law has proven very satisfying.  I am appreciative of all of the positive feedback from clients.  I serve the Livingston, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. 


My undergraduate degree in Business Management was where I became fascinated with the study of law. An introductory class in business law piqued my fascination.  The love and respect I experienced for the legal profession remains with me today.  I see law as a force for good, fairness, and justice.  This is evidenced with excellent results in cases involving: divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support, and property settlements. 


In my personal life and current law practice, I see the anxiety and confusion experienced by clients seeking divorce.  My value system dictates that I make the process as painless as possible.  I strive to resolve cases peacefully with out-of-court settlements where possible to save clients time and money and to minimize the damage done to families in what is a difficult and stressful time.  However, I am prepared and able to litigate effectively on my client’s behalf should the need arise.  I stay current and knowledgeable in all areas of family law. I attend family law conferences three times a year and have been invited to attend the Family Court Forum, sponsored by the Family Law Section of the State Bar.

When I meet with a client we discuss what their specific goals are and I explain their legal rights.  Then together we determine the best course of action to take in their particular case.

Worth every penny - HIGHLY recommend!
For anyone searching for a family attorney, look no further! My husband has retained the services of Thomas Spackey off and on for over 7 years due custody and parenting time type issues of all degrees. He is extremely professional, has a great reputation in the community and is an attorney of the highest integrity. Thomas has been consistently successful in achieving the results desired in the best interests of the child involved. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend.
