We are an organization of attorneys practicing in a particular area of law (family law, which is divorce, child custody, and related issues) in Wayne County, Michigan, which includes Detroit and is generally an urban area serving about 1.5 million people).
Our membership is very collegial and we have a lot of social events and community fundraising events. We have been together as a group for several years and most of the attorneys who practice regularly in our area of law in our county have been involved in the organization at some point in the past several years.
Our organization is NOT made up of only the elite attorneys, who serve only the wealthiest clients, practice in only the finest offices or firms, and charge only the highest rates. We are hard working attorneys who serve a hard working community during a very difficult time in any family's life. Our members do serve clients from a range of socio-economic status including those with significant, complex estates to be divided but we also offer our expertise to those who are experiencing the difficult economic times, but who still need help with dividing their property or debts. No matter what the socio-economic status of our clients, family law matters affect children in very profound ways, and our members help to guide families through extremely difficult decisions affecting their children.
