Grosse Pointe Law Center was launched in 2012 when founder Heather Bendure decided to create a boutique law firm dedicated to serving clients with divorce and other family law issues. The firm, located in Grosse Pointe, represents people in Wayne, Macomb, and Oakland counties in their divorce, custody, child support, Friend of the Court or other family law cases.
Our motto is collaboratively whenever possible, aggressively whenever necessary. It’s no secret that litigation and especially divorce litigation is stressful. It’s also expensive. If you can work out your differences with the other party and eventually come to a fair agreement, you should. If that’s not possible, we have the knowledge, the experience and the skill to effectively advocate for you in the courtroom.
