Helping Clients Through Every Aspect Of Family Law

A Law Firm That Cares About Your Family’s Success

With over 25 years of family law experience, Cole Family Law is dedicated to helping clients across the Detroit metro area through the issues that affect their families most — including adoption, spousal support, child custody, child support, parenting time, and divorce.

We know that family law matters are often filled with heightened emotions, which is why we always try to help clients stay focused on the bigger picture. We thoroughly explain how state laws will apply to your situation, putting together a plan that keeps your goals as the central focus.


About Us

Building An Agreement That Is Best For Your Child

When your case involves children, our firm always puts their best interests at the forefront of the case. We work with our clients to find creative solutions that put their success first, so you can minimize the impact your case has on their childhood and development.

Our philosophy in family law cases is to vigorously represent our clients while working toward an amicable resolution to each case, for the sake of both you and your child. We recognize that it is emotionally draining and stressful to go through a divorce or custody issue. Therefore, we aim to work together with the opposing attorney to resolve the case efficiently and with the least amount of animosity as possible.


What We Do

Resolving Cases Amicably For Over 25 Years

Vigorous Representation In Mediation

While many lawyers throughout Michigan focus on taking your case straight to trial, we believe that in divorce, mediation often provides the most favorable solutions for the lowest cost. Our principal attorney is a Certified Domestic Relations Mediator and is focused on using a combination of methods to put your divorce agreement in your own hands, rather than in the hands of a judge.
