Of Counsel
fax +1 248.988.2335

Ada Snyder Kerwin litigates and mediates family law matters. Courts or other attorneys also appoint her as Guardian Ad Litem/Parent Coordinator to help resolve family disputes.

Practicing exclusively in family law, Ada helps individuals and families find solutions to their disputes, guiding clients to resolve those disputes amicably, always remembering to put their children’s emotions and physical health first.

As a Master’s level Psychologist trained in family dynamics as well as an experienced family lawyer, Ada understands that while going through a divorce is a difficult, but temporary process, parenting is not. Ada works hard to help parents be successful co-parents as co-parenting children, at any age, requires long term cooperation. Successful co-parenting reaps the long-term benefit of mutually enjoying a child’s successes and milestones, such as graduations, weddings, and the births of their children.

As an experienced litigator, Ada is prepared when her clients need the Court to intervene.

Ada is extensively trained and experienced in domestic relations mediation and collaborative law and uses her training and experience to work with individuals and families to find solutions that fit their specific circumstances.
