She has vast experience in the areas of divorce, custody, separate maintenance, property settlement, and estate planning. She works in Washtenaw County primarily but has experience in Lenawee, Livingston, Oakland, and Wayne Counties.

Alison is a trained mediator and participates in Alternative Dispute Resolution seminars. She is a strong litigator when a case calls for court intervention. The experience as a litigator, mediator, and parenting coordinator gives Alison the ability to represent her clients in whichever setting is best suited for the case.

Alison came into the legal profession naturally. She grew up watching her father’s family law practice and learned how important it is to help people come to resolutions. In 2009, Alison graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with minors in English and History from Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois. During her undergraduate studies, she was inducted into the Political Science Honor Society (Pi Sigma Alpha) and was the Captain of the Women’s Varsity Soccer Team.
