056 - How Collaborative Divorce Can Make Your Divorce Easier.

With more than 30 years of experience as a family law, divorce, and custody attorney, mediator and Collaborative Divorce practitioner, Alisa Peskin-Shepherd founded Transitions Legal, a Bloomfield Hills, Mich.-based family law firm in 2013. She brings a “mediative” approach to her legal practice, a term she coined to refer to a permanent state of doing what is best for all involved — rather than letting anger and emotions lead the way. 

Peskin-Shepherd’s proven strategies help clients transition from one situation to the next with ease and grace, and her strategic approach to family law is unparalleled in Southeast Michigan. 

Recognized as a Super Lawyers honoree every year since 2015, and DBusiness Magazine Top Lawyer for three years running, Peskin-Shepherd is known for excellence in legal practice and as one of the top female lawyers in Michigan.

An approved mediator statewide, she is specially trained in a wide variety of legal focuses that aid her family law and mediation work. Peskin-Shepherd also has special training in domestic violence through the State Bar of Michigan Open Justice Commission.

Honored as a legal leader by the Detroit Jewish News Best of Michigan awards, Peskin-Shepherd speaks widely and leads workshops on topics related to Divorce, Collaborative Law and Mediation. Transitions Legal is located at 4190 Telegraph Rd., Suite 3100, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302; 248-290-0560; www.transitionslegal.com
