Family Law Practice Areas
Michigan's original law firm for women protects your rights in divorce
As the original Michigan law firm dedicated to helping women, we have more than 50 years of combined experience in family law. We can help protect your rights by educating you on the law and guiding you through the legal process. Unlike other attorneys, we only work with women and we only practice family law. Our approach combines pragmatic legal advice with sensitivity and responsiveness. Our exclusive concentration makes us a powerful weapon for women in Michigan struggling with a variety of marital and family law issues, including:
- Divorce — We capably manage all aspects of divorce in Michigan, including alimony, annulment, change of domicile, child custody, child support and parenting time.
- Post-divorce issues — We assert your rights should you require the enforcement of your property settlement or any post-judgment modification.
- Other domestic relations issues — We assist our clients in obtaining civil remedies such as personal protection orders where there is a threat of domestic violence and represent women in cases of paternity for out-of-wedlock births.
- Estate issues — We draft legal instruments to protect clients involved in domestic partnerships or those who need powers of attorney, prenuptial & postnuptial agreements, and wills and living wills.

A special devotion to women's rights
Our determination to help women means that we bring a level of empathy to our practice that is often lacking elsewhere. But all the caring in the world will not produce results if we don't also perform at a high level. DAWN’s attorneys are seasoned professionals who have conducted trials, arbitrations and mediations. We have worked in the court systems and with the judges of Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, Washtenaw and Livingston counties. We know Michigan law and we know how to protect women and their rights.
