With a deeply ingrained appreciation of the life-altering nature of divorce, custody disputes, and other family law matters, Alissa Oetman serves as a steady hand, guiding light, and unwavering ally for clients facing some of the biggest challenges of their lives.

Providing clarity, context, and comfort in equal measure, Alissa guides individuals through the stressful and unfamiliar processes involved when a marriage ends, when parents are at odds over their child’s present and future, or when other issues arise that implicate their relationships, finances, and well-being. She complements her determined advocacy and substantive knowledge with natural empathy and compassion, making her an effective attorney and a trusted advisor. With patience and respect and without legalese, Alisa ensures each client understands the legal process and what to expect, helps them define their goals, and sets a realistic, prudent course to achieve them.

Helping people through difficult circumstances has been the defining feature of Alissa’s career, even before she started practicing family law over a decade ago. A West Michigan native, Alissa worked in social services before attending law school, assisting individuals and families in Allegan struggling with homelessness and related socio-economic challenges. From this experience, she recognized the critical difference that resources, information, and support can make in the lives of those enduring traumatic times. This informs her approach to family law, and her clients reap the benefits of an attorney who understands their concerns, perspectives, and needs as much as she understands the law.
