About Attorney Jennipher R. Martinez
Since 1995, Jennipher R. Martinez Attorney at Law has focused her practice on family law, handling domestic relations issues including divorce, custody, parenting time, child support and spousal support (formerly known as alimony) matters. She combines her vast experience with a compassionate, caring, yet aggressive approach to finding solutions for her clients.
The decision of whether to file for divorce is usually a difficult and emotional decision, which also affects a person’s finances, lifestyle, future, and their children. As such, Jennipher frequently uses mediation, collaboration, and negotiation to reach agreement regarding division of property and issues related to the minor children. She has represented clients who are high-wealth individuals, including cases involving professional athletes, business owners, doctors, and lawyers, and their divorces often involve investigation and evaluation of business interests and obligations to ensure assets are divided and distributed equitably.
When resolution cannot be achieved amicably, however, Jennipher is equally prepared to vigorously pursue her clients’ rights in the courtroom. Admitted to practice law in Michigan, she regularly appears before judges in the Family Divisions of Ingham, Clinton and Eaton Circuit Courts.
Jennipher earned her undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and her law degree from the University of Chicago Law School (ranked third in the country), where she was taught by then Professor Barack Obama. For three years, she served as a Guardian Ad Litem in the 30th Circuit Court in Ingham County, Michigan, protecting the rights of children.
Jennipher’s goal in every divorce case is to handle the matter aggressively, and with compassion, and to provide straightforward advice and counsel that enables her clients to make the best decisions possible for themselves and their children.
