About Jennipher

Learn Jennipher’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Family
    Family law encompasses a host of marital and domestic relations issues. Many of these issues can be addressed and resolved amicably while others require assertive litigation or even court-ordered protection and police intervention.

  2. Divorce and separation
    When you come to the end of the road in your marriage, whether it is amicable or adversarial, experience matters, which is why it is recommended to hire the compassionate and caring advocacy of Attorney Martinez.

  3. Child custody
    When it comes to your children, you want what is best for them. It is important to find an equitable agreement between all the parties for the sake of the child(ren). Call 517.220.0503 for a case evaluation today.

  4. Child support
    Making sure your child has the best support from both parents is important. With time, expectations can change, which is why it's always important to work with an attorney. Call Attorney Martinez today to review your situation.

  5. Uncontested divorce
    Attorney Martinez is capable of handling uncontested divorce situations, which typically do not involve children, and will be more efficient than a contested divorce.

For the past 21 years, Ms. Martinez has focused on divorce, custody, parenting time, child support and property division matters.

She combines her vast experience with a caring, yet aggressive approach to finding positive solutions for her clients.  When resolution cannot be achieved amicably, Ms. Martinez is equally prepared to vigorously pursue her clients rights in the courtoom.  


She handles divorce and custody law matters in Ingham, Clinton, Eaton, and Shiawassee Counties.

calm, collected, personable, and professional
If you are reading this that means life probably has taken a direction that you had not planned. There is good news; Although your situation now may be unpleasant, it will get better. I had the pleasure of working with Jennipher through a very contentions divorce and child custody case. My now ex-wife was non-cooperative to say the least and was a textbook parental alienator. Jennipher was always focused on what was best for not only me but also for my children. Years of experience brought an attorney that was always calm, collected, and professional. She was never afraid to speak to me on a personal level. When in the courtroom I never had a doubt that I had the best attorney. Throughout our interactions, Jennipher and I were able to negotiate the property settlement, divorce, and child custody. She was also there to guide me through the process of improving relations with my ex-wife for the benefit of the children. I would highly recommend Jennipher to anyone that is considering any family law issues.

Excellent experience
I was treated with such kindness, compassion, and knowledge that the worst moment in my life was made so much better than I could have ever imagined. Jennipher was not only able to handle every issue that came up but was able to bring them to my attention even before they became an issue. I would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer Martinez to anyone needing a highly educated , knowledgeable, kind, and, extremely efficient attorney. I could never thank her and her staff enough.

Thorough and Very Helpful
I work for attorneys and when I decided it was time to get a divorce (also from an attorney) my bosses suggested that I call Jennipher. Although I know some things about the law and how to read legal paperwork, she really helped me get out of some issues that my ex was pushing on me, issues which would have been disastrous if I had let him bully me over them. She truly cares about her clients and was very helpful with my divorce process.

Professional and Honest
Jennipher recently helped me through a very difficult divorce. Her knowledge of the law as well as her years of experience made the process seem easy. I contacted a few different lawyers, but most just seemed interested in promising unrealistic results. She was very practical and was able to tell me honestly what I could expect throughout the process, and she was right in every aspect. I consider myself very lucky to have had her expertise, and in the end was very pleased with the results of my divorce. I highly recommend Jennipher to anyone going through any family issues that require legal assistance.
