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.

She’s the best!
I had Audra handle my divorce after running into a few bumps trying to file for myself. She took over and I had nothing to worry about. She was professional and extremely courteous to me at all times. She took the time to contact me after hours if needed. Or if I needed to ask her something. I would recommend her and the Rodenhouse law group to anyone e asking for a great lawyer

She is great. Had me and my wife divorced as soon a possible. It was amicable divorce so it went well and she is really reasonable on pricing! Thanks Audra for making it so painless!

A breath of fresh air and a First Class Attorney
Being from another state and having very unusual circumstances did not phase Audra in representing me to the fullest. She is top notch in every sense of the word. I could not have picked a better Attorney to represent me in my divorce proceedings. A few of the nicest things that come to mind when I think of Audra are: Confident, experienced, ethical, professional, understanding, responsive and honest. I feel blessed and thankful to have had her represent me.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Reasonable - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I had spoken with several different lawyers in the area and just wasn't happy with the advice I was receiving, or the rates I was quoted. I VERY LUCKILY found this lawfirm last-minute and hired Audra McClure on the spot. All of the other lawyers I had spoken to were telling me that I had to go through a very lengthly and costly process in order to move myself and daughter out-of-state. Audra assured me that the process was unnecessary and she was right! She very quickly resolved my parenting time and change of domicile issues, and the rates were VERY reasonable! She did a great job for me - I can't recommend her enough!

Child custody/visitation
Audra is very easy to talk to and easy reach. She listened to my specific needs and paid attention to details. Overall she is a pleasant attorney to work with.

Warm, friendly and affordable family lawyer
I live in Florida, and for a cross-state custody case I searched for a lawyer in Michigan. I came across Audra McClure's profile, and after talking to her on the phone explaining the case, I felt assured and relieved that she would be the right choice to represent me in that case. Mrs. McClure is very friendly person, knowledgeable and easy-to-work-with professional . We handled the case that spanned a time frame over several months, completely over email, and any inquiry from my side was responded quickly and to the point. She fully guided me through the process, and the case was concluded to everyone's full satisfaction. Due to this experience, I can full-heartedly recommend her as a lawyer for your legal matters.

First Class
I could not be happier with my decision to choose Audra to represent me in my divorce. She kept me well informed and was very patient with me. I never once felt like she was running my bill up or was over charging me. She helped me though a difficult time in my life. I highly recommend Audra. Thank you, Brian

Very Trustworthy, Very Informative, Explained Proceedings in Layman's Terms
Audra was very helpful in our custody case with a birth-father who was fighting our adoption of his biological son. In the end, the judge ended the custody case and began proceeding with the adoption. Very happy with our results.

Aweful - and overbills
I used her for a child custody case. She was unprepared and you could tell she spent literally an hour at most the night before preparing for the trial. She was told by the opposing counsel that the FOC was not going to show and could not be found so she didnt have any questions prepared for her, yet guess what she showed and none of the questioning she stated to me she was going to ask were asked. I couldnt see my daughter based off false accusations and in the time I hired her nothing changed, I still couldnt see my daughter. I gave her $2000 upfront. She was my lawyer for literally a week and just did this trial. She than demanded another $4000 and refused to help me anymore to help me see my daughter when of course the mother wouldnt follow court orders reguarding supervised parenting. The big question I have is at $250 an hour, how did she come up with $6000 in fees in a week. I'm not her only client. Now I got a lawsuit against me which I'll have to fight- Shes suing me for the other $4000. I'm going to be filing my own grievance for Improper conduct and overbilling with the Attorney Grievance commission as well as fight this. She overbills and will not help you. She obviously is not very experienced and you'll spend an arm and a leg for nothing. I still dont see my daughter and now have to spend time fighting a frivilous lawsuit against me. STAY AWAY.

Forgot to file child support and paternity documents on in two seperate cases
Nice person. Lacks experience. I had two cases with her simultaneously. 1 case was told it was complete including child support, only to find out 6 months later that she never filed the child support recommendation, thus failing to make it an actual order. As a result I lost a full years worth of child support and had to refile everything myself. She already charged me for filing the support order. Also, on both cases, she forgot to file order of filiation, required by the courts to establish paternity. This resulted in the drunk mother getting full custody rights until I refiled and established paternity myself. This was after paying her for 1.5 years worth of custody battle. Fired her for incompetence. She offered to knock off $400 from my bill. Zero integrity and takes no responsibility for her errors even charging you for what she never filed.
