Michele M. Giordano, attorney and founder of Giordano Law, PLC, is a family law, estate planning, and litigation attorney helping clients with cases involving: divorce, post-divorce, custody, adoption, guardianships, and the drafting of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney. Additionally, Michele is a trained domestic relations mediator and collaborative divorce lawyer, making her passionate about assisting clients through the Alternative Dispute Resolution and Collaborative Divorce processes
Specializing in family law for over a decade, Michele has spent her career working in both large and small firms, earning recognition for her exemplary work in the area of family law. When opening the doors to Giordano Law, PLC in 2015, she made a commitment to offer her clients a variety of options for resolving their legal issues. Why? Because she understands that no two families are alike. By working conjointly with her clients, Michele believes that together they can determine the most effective method for resolving legal disputes based on a client's individual needs.
Michele's philosophy is focusing on the family - especially the children - during a family law matter, often thinking outside the box in order to find solutions that allow clients to move forward and thrive. She understands that each case is as unique as the family it is about and she treats each client as an individual, knowing that there is no “one size fits all” solution to domestic cases. Additionally, Michele has developed a vast network of professional colleagues to assist her clients when needed, from financial experts, realtors, mental health professionals, child specialists and beyond.
Michele believes in giving back and feels it is an obligation to regularly donate her time to pro bono work. Over the years, she has also represented victims of domestic violence in a variety of scenarios and understands the unique nature involved in handling such a case and the sensitivity needed in representing such a client.
She is very involved in the community, volunteering for committees and sitting on several boards for organizations she feels passionate about. She enjoys writing and has been a regular author for local publications on family law issues.
In her spare time, Michele likes to spend time with her family and friends, travel, run, test her physical limits at CrossFit Grand Rapids and hang with her pug, Riggins.
