Kathleen M. Brown


As a former high school teacher, past assistant public defender, mother of teenagers and solo private practice attorney in Washtenaw County, Michigan, I understand the bumpy road families and individuals may experience in every day life.  I help resolve the kinds of daily life legal concerns many people face at one time or another: 


  • Consumer debts, installment payment plans and bankruptcy;  


  • Misdemeanors and juvenile delinquency matters;


  • Wills and life documents like durable powers of attorney and health care declarations.


  • Selective other legal problems including child neglect, expungements, traffic tickets, name changes and driver's license matters.


Typically my clients live and/or work in Washtenaw County or Wayne County, Michigan. 


For a lighter side of Kathleen, see her Monday Profile, in the Washtenaw County Legal News, June 2013.


"She always kept me informed of what was going on. She is very thorough and followed up to verify the quality of her work.  I highly recommend her services."  - excerpt from former client's unsolicited review on, 2014.
