I have been blessed with the opportunity of joining my father in his practice, as well as venturing out into areas he was not able to do because of his teaching career. I have represented individuals as a court-appointed attorney in the Livingston County Probate Court, as well as represented individuals in divorce proceedings. I have completed an extensive training course for bankruptcy attorneys to allow me to represent individuals in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings. I feel that my experience, both legal and personal, allows me to counsel my client, as well as address their legal needs.
 
For more than 30 years my father has built a practice with his skill and reputation. It is my ambition to continue to grow the practice, but still keep the personal touch he has achieved all these years. Clients are not customers- they are people seeking help and advice in very personal and sometimes painful situations, and deserve to be treated as such and have those needs addressed with compassion and professionalism.

Superb Attorney
In need of a top-notch divorce attorney, I was referred to Mia Lawson by an associate who used Lawson and Lawson for estate planning processes. I was not disappointed. It was apparent from the initial meeting that she is exceptionally competent and thorough in the service she provides. She went to great lengths to understand the fairly complex circumstances surrounding my case, and executed all associated actions in a timely and highly professional manner. I offer my highest recommendation for Ms Lawson without reservation.

A Wow Experience!
Mia Lawson is a consummate professional. Her approach is sincere and refreshing! As a business professional myself, I believe relationships and understanding the needs of clients are a key to success. Mia spent the time required to understand my needs before giving advice and then guided me through the steps to protect my family and future. I highly recommend Mia Lawson for estate planning!

Great experience
Mia was easy to work with and took the time to explain the process of estate planning to my husband and me in a way that we understood. We now have a complete plan in place that will take care of our things and family the way we want. I would highly recommend using this lawyer.
