SOLUTION FOCUSED LEGAL THINKING

Bradley Vauter & Associates, P.C., is a small private firm but with an enormous public spirit.

Client Meetings and Staff Changes

Variants in Covid-19 continue to keep us all on our toes.  We are meeting with some clients in person, using only the large conference room and taking other precautions.  We also continue to arrange for telephone conferences or meetings by way of Zoom.  Our staff have been vaccinated and most all of our clients have been too. When you call for an appointment we can discuss how best to proceed, in ways that are comfortable for everyone.   We continue to evolve and change too with some growth and the challenges related to a changing legal landscape.

We have added a legal assistant, Margaret Bierstetel, from Grand Ledge, who will be with us three days a week, starting with 2022 and we are bidding goodbye to Mariam Alata who left us at the end of 2021, headed on for new adventures in S.E. Michigan.

Dedicated Team. Focused on Elegant and Appropriate Solutions to Client Problems.

“When I needed him, Brad was there. . . Every time. . . He has much patience, perseverance, is not pushy, but yet with his expertise, knowledge and research, knows how to write or say what is needed to get results! He went out of his way to get me out of a big bind I was put in. Thank you :- )” Michael Hicks Hicks Agency (Insurance) 428 W. Lenawee St. Lansing MI

MICHAEL HICKS, Hicks Agency (Insurance)

“Brad was extremely thorough when explaining, and also open-minded to my suggestions and concerns.  He seems to understand life thru many perspectives; I believe we got along great considering the age gap between us.  It could be education, it could be his ability to relate”
