He has been in front of virtually every judge in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Jackson, Shiawassee, Gratiot and Ionia counties, as well as many other Circuit Courts throughout mid-Michigan.

Mr. Bailey has successfully represented thousands of clients in divorce and custody matters and can fully assist his clients in navigating the turbulent waters of a divorce.
