Attorney Carol Jones Dwyer has over thirty years of experience with the areas of Michigan law that people are most likely to need: family law, estate planning, real estate, personal injury, criminal defense, and general civil litigation. A longstanding member of the Hastings community, Carol has dedicated her career to serving her neighbors in Barry County and the surrounding Michigan communities, including Ingham, Kent, Ionia, Calhoun, Allegan and Kalamazoo Counties.
Carol offers her clients a breadth and depth of legal experience typically found in big law firms in larger cities. At the same time, she deeply values the relationships and commitment to personal service found in smaller law firms and communities like Hastings and Barry County. She strives to bring the best of both worlds to her practice by incorporating big-firm resources and small-firm personal attention. Her reputation for toughness in negotiations and in the courtroom is balanced by her ability to mediate disputes through seeking and recognizing common ground.
Mediation allows clients to arrive at their own customized resolutions to issues in a dispute with the support of a neutral third-party, the mediator. Carol's skill and special training as both a mediator and a litigator means that she can offer her clients whichever dispute resolution option best suits their needs and circumstances.
Carol Jones Dwyer knows that when people are dealing with a legal matter, whether a divorce, an injury case, or a criminal charge, they have a lot of questions. She understands that it's not enough for an attorney to offer solid legal services; a good attorney keeps clients informed, helps them understand the legal road ahead, and helps them to make the best decisions to serve their goals. Her extensive experience in court enables her to be both a powerful advocate and a knowledgeable counselor to her clients.
