Our Practice Areas

We know that our neighbors in Oakland County have diverse legal needs. Our Rochester lawyer offers comprehensive legal services across Michigan, including, divorce and family law, estate planning, and personal injury claims.

Divorce and Family Law

When a relationship ends, many couples cannot resolve property and child-related issues without legal help. For this reason, it’s in your best interest to consult with a Rochester divorce lawyer.

We assist couples with the following:

  • Child custody and visitation, including modification and termination of custody and support payments
  • Divorce proceedings
  • Division of marital property and debts
  • Domestic violence and protective orders
  • Mediation and alternative dispute resolution
  • Paternity issues
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Spousal support issues (i.e., alimony)

While our goal is to quickly and amicably resolve family law issues, we’re always prepared to take cases to trial.

Estate Planning, Trusts, Wills, and Probate

Estate planning isn’t just for the elderly or seriously ill. If you have a family, an estate plan can help you protect your spouse, children, or other important loved ones after your death. Moreover, an estate plan can also protect your interests if you become incapacitated due to a life-threatening injury or medical condition.

Our Lake Orion estate planning attorney can help you with the following:

  • Administration of a loved one’s probate estate
  • Durable powers of attorney that help direct your healthcare, financial, and business decisions while you’re incapacitated
  • Legal guardianship documents protecting a minor child or disabled adult
  • Wills and trusts that distribute your assets

Personal Injury

When someone else’s negligence or misconduct causes serious injuries, it’s important to consult with a Lake Orion personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies frequently delay paying legitimate personal injury claims or deny them completely. Our experienced litigators can help you recover the compensation you deserve. We represent accident victims who were involved in the following:

  • Bicycle accidents
  • Car and truck accidents
  • Dangerous and defective products and medications (products liability)
  • Medical and professional malpractice
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Nursing home neglect
  • Slip and falls
  • Wrongful death

If you have questions about a personal injury claim, do not delay in calling a Lake Orion lawyer. Michigan sets relatively short filing deadlines in these claims. If you do not file the correct paperwork before your deadline expires, you’ll lose your right to compensation.

Great to work with! We have a plan through MetLaw through my work and they accept it here. There was only a $25 extra free on top for the materials and binder we received. They follow a COVID process which we appreciated. They were incredibly helpeful and answered all our questions. The in person part took about 1.5 hours- just FYI for planning!

Scott and Sarah at the Rochester office were professional and efficient in getting a whole estate plan in place for me. They walked me through every step, coaching me regarding what each document was, how it impacted my estate plan, and finally how all of the documents work together. At the end of the process I now have all the documents I (well, my estate) will need when I pass. Thank you.
