Our Practice

In choosing our firm, you benefit from the knowledge and expertise of not one attorney but many, with a combined 120+ years of family law experience.

By pioneering dispute resolution processes such as collaborative practice and mediation, Nichols, Sacks, Slank, Sendelbach Buiteweg & Solomon's  Michigan family law attorneys have earned a reputation for helping clients reach settlements amicably, with less cost and emotional upset to all involved. And, while litigation of family matters is rare in today’s courts, if your case requires it, our attorneys will represent you forcefully and with maximum civility.

Broad-based involvement at every level of our profession keeps us on the forefront of legal issues and trends in case law, some of which we helped establish. Our attorneys hold leadership positions with, among others, the State Bar of Michigan, American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers/Michigan Chapter, and the Collaborative Practice Institute of Michigan.


I’m hoping we are the poster children for the benefits and positive power of successful mediation. Both my husband I feel the process had immeasurable benefits to the well-being of our children.
