In 2012, Lori relocated to Indianapolis, Indiana, sojourning into private practice with the law firm of Ciyou & Dixon. While practicing in Indiana, she focused primarily on Family Law and Appellate practice, winning reversals in Divorce cases, Adoption Matters, and Child Custody Modification cases.
In 2014, she argued before the Indiana Supreme Court, prevailing on an important adoption/third party child custody issue in the State of Indiana, setting precedence for all future adoption cases in Indiana. Additionally, she has briefed well over 30 cases to the Indiana Court of Appeals and Indiana Supreme Court. Her appellate and family law trial experience allows her to understand your case top to bottom and work with you to ensure that you and your family’s needs are met now and into the future.
Lori continues her practice here in Northern Michigan in all matters involving the family, including adult and minor child guardianships, divorce, child custody, child support, estate planning, probate administration, and small business matters.
In her spare time, Lori likes to remodel and renovate her home and office space, using her one semester of interior design school experience. Lori had a variety of interests outside of her law practice, like skiing, kayaking, hiking, sewing, and baking… you might find a fresh batch of cookies or cupcakes at the office from time to time.
