“I believe in representing my clients assertively and fairly, never taking advantage of anyone or allowing anyone to take advantage of my clients.”

Lori A. Buiteweg has been an attorney since 1990 with a strong commitment to peace, justice and integrity to her family law practice. During her 26 years as a lawyer, and a mother of two adult children, she has become a staunch advocate for children’s rights and, as such, works hard to help parents keep their focus on the welfare of their children.

Lori's areas of experise are complex, high-asset cases and challenging custody matters. She has handled over 1,000 matters and has tried and mediated many cases to successful conclusion.

Her clients appreciate her positive attitude, empathy, reassuring demeanor and sense of humor as well as her competent and practical legal advice and conscientious dedication and initiative. A member of the International Association of Collaborative Professionals, Lori uses her legal knowledge and skills as a trained mediator and collaborative lawyer to resolve all issues of the divorce out of court whenever possible, yet is also fully capable of using the Court when necessary to advocate for her clients.

A graduate with honors from the University of Michigan’s Honors Program and Wayne State University Law School, Lori actively volunteers for local judicial projects involving law related education, family law, mediation, and community outreach.
