Client Review: "A breath of fresh air and a First Class Attorney." Call her today.
I'm originally from northern Michigan, and I've lived in Michigan my whole life. I enjoy all that Michigan has to offer, from its natural beauty to the culture and restaurants of downtown Grand Rapids. I pride myself in being able to empathize with my clients because I've been there myself, and I understand what they're going through.
I've handled many Divorce, Custody, Child Support, Parenting Time, Paternity, and Criminal Defense cases in West Michigan, including Kent, Ottawa, Newaygo, Allegan, Montcalm, Ionia, Clinton, and Ingham Counties. I also do estate planning everywhere in Michigan.
I offer free in-person consultations, and flexible payment structures. I also offer mediation services.
