Lipson Neilson, a national law firm with offices in Michigan, Nevada, Colorado, and Arizona, announced that Hon. Lisa M. Neilson (retired) is now of counsel of its growing team.

Neilson joins the firm after a distinguished career of service in the Wayne County Probate Court assigned to the family division of the Third Judicial Circuit Court, the largest trial court in Michigan. She first served in the juvenile division and then transferred to the domestic division where most of her time was spent on the bench.

Lipson Neilson is ready to utilize her unique qualifications in family law gained from serving as both an attorney and judge and her expertise with the consultation and resolution of challenging family law matters, particularly those involving the care and well-being of children.

As a certified mediator and arbitrator for family law proceedings, Neilson will also assume the role of director of alternate dispute resolution (ADR) in the family law department at Lipson Neilson.

In addition to ADR, Neilson offers holistic and multi-specialty professional services as the managing partner of Neilson Family Law Consulting. The consulting services facilitate parenting time coordination, family custody disputes, and many other family law needs with empathy and care.

To bolster all her roles, she currently is pursuing a master’s degree in social work at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
