Experienced Legal Counsel For Clients Throughout Western Michigan
If you are facing a legal matter, it may be the most frustrating and worrisome time of your life. For most people, dealing with a serious family law issue like divorce or probate is confusing. Let us help you put your mind a little more at ease.
You Deserve Clear, Honest Communication From Your Lawyer
We are the legal team of Quist Hansen PLLC. We have 35 years of combined experience helping individuals and families in western Michigan cope with the emotions and worries that are often part of the legal process. First, let us assure you that you will get through this with your family intact. Our firm is dedicated to conflict resolution, whether through negotiations or litigation. Our job is to respond in a way that helps you through your circumstances — not simply react to specific situations. We will start by sitting down with you in a free initial consultation to discuss your needs and concerns. We will inform you about the process, the services we offer and, very frankly, the fees you should expect to pay and the length of time your case may require. Often, understanding what lies ahead is the first step in feeling more confident in taking the next step.
"You deserve honesty from your lawyer. We have built our success on integrity — and that begins and ends with clear and honest communication." — Attorney Courtney Quist

To serve you better, we focus our practice on the following areas of the law:
- Michigan family law: Throughout your case, we will strive to meet the needs of every member of your family, in a contained and cost-effective manner. Our goal is to create, or preserve, an environment that will foster continuity and stability for your family in the long run. If your case does go to trial, however, we will defend you vigorously in order to get the best possible settlement for you. In addition, our firm handles the complex and emotional details of post-judgment modifications, including matters related to legal language, failure to comply and amendments to meet the parties' needs and circumstances.
- Estate planning and probate: Handling estate and probate matters on your own can be confusing and frustrating. We offer a full range of services in the areas of wills and trusts, guardianships and probate law. We can even help you with your probate and estate administration needs if you are not a resident of western Michigan but need someone to handle the final affairs for a deceased parent or other loved one in the area.
It Often Costs Less To Hire An Experienced Attorney Right From The Start
Many people come to us after trying to handle their family law or probate matters themselves. Handling legal matters is often frustrating and time-consuming, even for experienced professionals. Although it may seem cost-effective to leave the lawyers out, it is often more expensive to backtrack and fix errors than it would be to have an experienced lawyer handle things correctly from the beginning.
