Attorney Manderfield has a very wide range of professional life experiences including the medical field, law and being a District Court and Circuit Court Judge.

  • Thomas C. Kates

    I knew Judge Manderfield when she was an Ingham County Circuit Judge. I recently learned she has obtained training in domestic and civil mediation and I had the pleasure of participating in some of the training exercises with her. She has the experience and the personality to be an excellent mediator.
