Family Law


Varnum's Family Law Team is comprised of lawyers who have dedicated their careers to achieving successful outcomes for individuals facing one of the most difficult times in their lives. With over 100 years of combined experience, Varnum's Family Law Team produces results by bringing an entrepreneurial spirit to each client's case. With our strong work ethic, creativity and innovation, each of Varnum's family law lawyers strives to accomplish the goals of our clients, whether they are husbands, fathers, wives, mothers, business owners, executives or professionals.

No matter the complexity of the family law issues involved, we provide our undivided attention to each client. Regardless of how sophisticated the estate, each of our clients receives the benefit of working with a large law firm that offers corporate, tax, labor and employment, and estate planning attorneys to assist each case when experience in any of these areas is required. No matter how difficult the relationship that exists between parents, each client receives the benefit of working with attorneys who have experience in high-conflict situations, mental health disorders and domestic abuse. 

Our goal is to assist our clients in reaching fair settlements in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Our clients also understand that if agreements cannot be reached, our Family Law Team will effectively and passionately represent their interests in the courtroom. Let Varnum be the law firm that takes care of protecting you, your children and your assets.
