Mr. Nesi was able to achieve everything I asked of him. He was professional and an outstanding lawyer. I recommend Mr. Nesi to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

This is my first experience with an attorney. I had seen Mr. Nesi in court representing another client. The representation was so great that I left the court room to get his business card, I called him the same day. Chris Nesi is currently representing me and I am thrilled. Chris Nesi is tremendous at what he does.

I have been through many lawyers in my quest for custody of my children. Chris Nesi is the first lawyer that gave me his cell phone number and actually called me back on the weekends - regardless of the time. Usually, I would wait days for a lawyer to call me back. That's not all, when we got to court, Chris mopped the floor with my ex's attorney!!! I now have sole custody of my children and I am receiving more child support than I expected! I would recommend Chris Nesi to anyone who wants a lawyer who will fight for them and your kids!!! Thanks a million Chris.

Child Custody client

I have had past experiences with lawyers, they were too busy to answer phone calls but quick to bill. Chris Nesi was different. He was amazing. He was kind, knowing our case very well, and really cared about our family. Chris Nesi was so wonderful, that i can not find the words to express what a great job he did for us.

Two New Legal Guides Aid Military Families and Vets

Two New Legal Guides Aid Military Families and Vets



July 17, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette introduced two new resources for Michigan military families and Michigan veterans, in honor of Military Consumer Protection Day. The “Military and Veterans Legal Services Guide” is a combined effort between the Michigan Department of Attorney General and the Veterans Law Clinic of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, and the “Michigan Guide to Military Family Law” is a collaboration between the attorney general and Thomas M. Cooley Law School.


“I am proud to provide two new legal resources for our Michigan military community,” said Schuette. “The incredible sacrifices by the men and women of the Armed Forces cannot be overstated. Service members, past and present, have dedicated their lives and careers to the good of the nation and we are grateful.”

The two resources were developed for military families who experience frequent relocation, separation from family and friends, and stresses of deployment. Many veterans and service members are faced with a myriad of legal issues and need practical and useful advice. Often times a steady government paycheck can also make military households an attractive target for scam artists.

“The frequent moves and overseas deployments that come with military service can sometimes create legal headaches for veterans when they return to civilian life,” said Jeff Barnes, Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency director. “Ensuring that veterans understand their rights and the legal community understands the nuances of the law as it relates to veterans will help make that transition home as smooth as possible.”

“These legal resources are a huge help for our Michigan Guard members and their families. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the men and women on the legal teams who put them together,” said Major General Gregory J. Vadnais, director of the Department of Military and Veteran’s Affairs.

The “Military and Veterans Legal Services Guide” is designed to provide Michigan military personnel and veterans, and those who assist them, with a directory of resources for legal matters. The guide contains a “one-stop” location of resources specific to veterans needs as well as resources to assist them in addressing legal problems that may not be related to their status as veterans.

For example, it provides information about available resources to veterans with low incomes, including Project Salute, a University of Detroit Mercy School of Law program that provides pro bono assistance to veterans and helps them with obtaining federal veterans benefits.

The guide also offers information about various legal and legal related programs for all veterans and active duty military personnel. Such programs include Cooley’s Service to Soldiers Program which offers free legal assistance to Michigan military personnel who are deploying or returning.

The guide also offers helpful consumer protection advice and identifies various judicial resources for veterans and service members, including contact information for Veterans’ Treatment Courts that are authorized by Michigan statute to serve military veterans, and some active-duty personnel.

“As a military-friendly school, and one that serves our community on a daily basis, we appreciate the opportunity for our Veterans Law Clinic to work with the attorney general’s office on the Military and Veterans Legal Resources Guide,” said Phyllis Crocker, University of Detroit Mercy School of Law dean.

The “Michigan Guide to Military Family Law” is a legal resource manual specifically dealing with family law issues that will assist members of the military, lawyers, judges, and persons who advise military personnel and their families to navigate through this complex legal area. While not a substitute for personal legal advice, the “Michigan Guide to Military Family Law” provides information on a number of family law topics, including divorce, child custody, and child and spousal support. These issues are not only legally complex but are emotionally difficult and the guide is intended to answer basic question unique to military service members.

“We are extremely proud of our students and faculty who worked side-by-side with the attorney general’s office to develop this guide,” said Amy Timmer, Thomas M. Cooley Law School associate dean of Students and Professionalism.
“Cooley’s Service to Soldiers pro bono program, which has helped thousands of service members with civilian legal problems, provided the impetus for the guide, but it is the dedication of the students, faculty, and the attorney general to our military service members that got the work done. The shared spirit of volunteerism makes this collaboration especially meaningful.”

These new resources were unveiled Thursday, July 17, in downtown Detroit’s Chrysler House Building, owned by Quicken Loans Founder and Chairman, Dan Gilbert. Quicken Loans recently launched Tour of Duty, a program to assist returning service members with their transition to civilian life. The company also chartered a new American Legion Post in Detroit, comprised of Quicken Loans employees who have served our nation in the military.

“Our men and women in uniform deserve honor and support from all sectors, whether that is government, nonprofit or the private sector,” said Schuette. “We’re pleased to have Quicken Loans’ support for these new resources and appreciate their dedication to Michigan service members.”
