Butzel Long's family law attorneys rank among the leading and most respected practitioners in the field. We are nationally recognized by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Best Lawyers, and Super Lawyers. Highly attentive, sensitive, responsive, creative, and mature, we successfully manage and resolve complex, non-routine divorce and other family law-related matters. We approach each client in a hands-on, highly-customized manner that normally comes only from smaller, boutique law firms but we also offer the vast resources that only a large law firm can provide. This juxtaposition gives clients an advantage in matters that often involve significant assets, contentious legal issues, and considerable emotion. Our multi-disciplinary approach further allows us to advise on other related matters, including business, financial, estate, and tax planning issues.
We counsel in all aspects of family law, including divorce, annulment, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, property division, alimony or spousal support, child support, custody, visitation, paternity, guardianship, and adoption issues. We understand the nuances and intricacies of the most complex marital estates and family dynamics. Our strengths are in technical and specialized areas such as the proper valuation of spousal corporate benefits and deferred compensation.
