About me

I have been providing legal services to residents throughout the Counties of Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair and Wayne since 1987.  I have maintained Joseph P. Palazzolo Law Offices in the City of Sterling Heights, Michigan since 1994.


I have more than 26 years' experience handling divorces, custody battles, child support and parenting time issues, and other family law matters.   A divorce can raise a lot of questions, cause confusion and can be a frightening experience.  As a skilled divorce lawyer, I can guide you through the process and obtain a fair settlement on your behalf and ease the anxiety.  


With my vast legal experience with drunk driving tickets and driving while impaired, assault & battery, domestic violence and other criminal cases, you can place your trust in me as your defense lawyer to provide you with competent and skilled representation. 


Traffic violations are best handled by a traffic attorney who knows the ins and outs of the legal system.  You can depend on me to work out the best possible plea on your behalf.  It is imperative that truck drivers maintain a clean driving record, so choose a traffic lawyer who you are confident in to keep it that way. 


If your situation involves an area of law that I do not specialize in, I will refer you to an attorney having the expertise in that particular field.


Contact me for a free consultation to discuss your legal issue.  If you need to know your rights or need clarification of the law, I will answer your questions and help you make informed decisions.
