While many Michigan residents continue to consider divorce, a recent article in Bloomberg reported that the U.S. divorce rate has reached “its lowest level in more than 35 years,” and is on a three-year decline.

Jeff made me feel very comfortable in what was a very difficult time. He knew exactly what to do and put my mind at ease many times about issues that would come up. He took time no matter where he was to get back to me as soon as possible. I appreciated his help tremendously.
Jeff has represented me twice and both times far exceeded my expectations. I never once felt Jeff and his team didn't do everything possible to provide the very best outcome for me. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for honest, hardworking, and dedicated representation.
I have gone through about 4 lawyers and then hired Jeff. I have had him in my corner now for roughly 5 years and I'm keeping him there until my daughter graduates high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows what to do or say and when to. He is very calculated and firm when dealing with the other side. You do not want a lawyer that's a pushover, Jeff is a fighter. Because of Jeff, I got 50/50 custody and much lower child support costs than most other guys I talk to. I've never been disappointed or felt let…
Felice, Terri and Amanda! I couldn't have gotten through this without you guys. I picked you, because I knew you were smart. That's just a fact. Thank you forever.
Jeff has been my attorney in a long running custody battle. He is knowledgeable, principled and empathetic. I would highly recommend him.

Absolutely the most knowledgeable, ethical and successful family law practice in Metro Detroit. Jeff was truly a professional and very trustworthy. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who is in need of honest advice and great representation.
Mr. Salassa was the BEST family attorney. He answered all my questions immediately and with phenomenal legal knowledge. I only wish every attorney was this good. Your best interests will be represented 100% if you retain Jeff.
Jeff Salassa is an excellent attorney. Hands down the best.
I needed representation on 4 different occasions for 3 different reasons. I came away with the better of each situation. I consider his record with me as 4-0. He knows his field extremely well. Passionate and aggressive.
