Compassionate counsel

At the Law Offices of Jennifer S. Peterson-Ramsey, our clients are more than just case numbers. We see the human element behind every legal issue, and we realize that a judgment can impact the future of your family, children, finances or even your freedom. Every case presents its own unique set of challenges. We face these hurdles alongside you, making sure you never feel alone. You will speak directly to your attorney, not an endless stream of associates. This ensures that, at every step along the way, you receive full and complete explanations that enable you to make informed decisions. We know that our clients are going through difficult times. Allow us to help you navigate through them and come out on the other side as painlessly as possible — and with a satisfying conclusion.


We want to make our Michigan clients feel as comfortable as possible with the process of retaining an attorney and going through legal proceedings. Bearing that in mind, we offer weekend and evening appointments so that a visit to your attorney’s office does not mean you have to miss work.
