A Message from Don Rivard

If you came to this website, you are probably worried, confused, or maybe even scared because you have a problem that requires legal representation.

Since 1975, I have been a neighborhood practitioner.
I represent people. I draft their estate plans, handle their
real estate transactions, and probate their estates.
I represent them in divorces, child support and custody litigation. I represent them in criminal matters and protect
their rights when they are injured. Not only do I practice in Dearborn Heights, I also live here and am actively involved
in the community.

Clients want someone to listen to them and explain what’s happening top them in clear language. That’s how I handle my practice. I know that a lawyer has a solemn obligation to represent his clients to the best of his ability. Clients have a right and a need to know exactly what is happening with their case at all times. I will keep my clients informed of all developments and return their calls promptly.
