Grand Rapids Divorce Lawyer

The breakup of a marriage is always traumatic and stressful. If you are facing or considering divorce, the many decisions you must make are all important. The divorce lawyer you choose to guide and represent you should be one you can talk with openly and trust for experienced, practical counsel.

More Than 20 Years Of Experience Handling All Aspects Of Divorce

Since 1993, divorce and other family law concerns have been primary areas of focus for attorney Dennis Shimmell and our legal team. Emphasizing personal attention and a balanced, strategic approach, we help men and women throughout the Grand Rapids metro area and surrounding Michigan communities resolve disputed issues and move forward in life.

Dedicated To Protecting Your Parental Rights And Financial Well-Being

Divorce with children involved presents numerous complex challenges. In addition to protecting your most important relationships by targeting fair child custody and parenting time orders, we will help you gauge the amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive. If allegations of domestic violence or other serious problems exist, attorney Shimmell will work rigorously to protect your kids and your own interests.

The financial impact of divorce is also very significant. Whatever your family's economic status, the prospect of dividing assets and debts can create serious conflict. Our law firm is an excellent resource for people facing high-asset divorce, those in need of both divorce and bankruptcy counsel, and others confronting marital dissolution. We emphasize:

  • Solid, clear communication to ensure you understand your rights and options under the law
  • Collaboration to help you focus on the issues that matter most to you and develop strategies aligned with your goals
  • Maximum effort to resolve your case as efficiently as possible through direct negotiation or mediation — backed by total preparation to argue your case in court if necessary
