Practice Area: Child custody
Outcome: Joint physical custody for father
Description: I represented a father who wanted joint custody of his minor son. He lived in a rural area of Michigan that has never given joint custody in a contested matter to a father. I aggressively represented his interest and refused to settle or talk my client into something less, even though the Friend of the Court told me that I will never get joint custody in that county. After several contested days of hearings my client was awarded joint custody.
