About Karen

Learn Karen’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    Compassion, efficiency, and knowledge are necessary when choosing a divorce attorney. Divorcing one's spouse is a life-changing choice. Your divorce attorney must understand the divorce laws, assets management, pension and retirement savings benefits, and custody and support. Hire the attorneys who know what they are doing. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

    26 years, 300 cases

  2. Probate

    26 years, 700 cases

  3. Wills and living wills
    Everyone needs a Will; some, but not all people need trusts. Hire an attorney who will provide you with the comprehensive estate plan YOU need. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

    26 years, 300 cases

  4. Trusts
    Trusts are complicated, living documents that provide many benefits to all those who need a trust. Work with the attorneys who know the laws on preparing trust, and how to make a trust work for the family. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

    26 years, 200 cases

  5. Child custody
    Fighting for custody is its own specialty. There is a lot of Michigan case law and statutes pertaining to custody and the custodial environment. I know custody law and am very effective in gaining custody for my client. Hire an attorney who can fully represent you. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

    26 years, 100 cases

  6. Child support
    I will litigate a post-divorce child support case for a set fee. I believe all individuals should be represented at the FOC for their child support matter. Hire an attorney who will provide you with the affordable representation you need. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

    26 years, 150 cases

  7. Elder law
    Michigan has drastically changed their procedures for medicaid approval. Don't loose your assets and financial security because your spouse is in a nursing home. Spouses have rights and have a right to keep a portion of the marital assets, and a portion of the monthly marital income. Hire an attorney who knows the law. Hire Ross Legal Group, P.C.

Extremely Helpful!
I began working with Karen Ross while settling my father's estate taxes and then seeking advise for my personal family taxes. Karen took a lot of time educating me and gathering all relevant information to get my family the maximum tax advantages. I did not feel like I was being rushed through her office, but rather really listened to and that my situation was important to her. She was also very helpful and willing to answer follow up questions as I learned the processes. Highly recommend her.

Wise, Detailed, Compassionate
From working with Karen, I learned that she is patient and detailed in her work. She looked out for me by answering all of my questions and spending the time with me to go through the paperwork to present my case so that my case was presenting as strong and factual in the court of law. Dealing with my situation was stressful, but she kept working with me so that the details were all organized and that I could present my case in a confident manner. It is very apparent that she cares about the cases that she takes on. I am very grateful for her expertise in helping me.

I highly recommend Karen Ross for your legal needs.
After 22 years of marriage I was blindsided when I was served with divorce papers. From the first time I walked into Karen’s office she put me at ease. She is extremely knowledgeable of all rights and laws. She guided me through the entire process. She was available whenever I had questions or concerns.
