Biography

Lucy Araj works with clients in all aspects of family law, particularly divorce, post-judgment issues and custody, child and spousal support matters. "I strongly believe in mediation and alternate dispute resolution, in most cases at the inception of a case," Lucy says. "The parties themselves, not a judge, should be the ones to decide their futures."

Testimonials

"My mother was involved in a very difficult divorce after 52 years of marriage. The support she received from Nazli, Lucy, and Cindy was terrific. These ladies really work as a team in terms of communication and accessibility. There was always someone that could be contacted directly and questions/issues were handled with extreme professionalism. Always the first consideration was my mother's perspective. Her wishes were always the driving concern with the legal team. There were several occasions when immediate action was required and Nazli was able to juggle her commitments (not sure how she even did it!) but she really came through at the absolute critical time for my mother. This high level of dedication and genuine concern for their clients is what I will remember most about working with this talented team!” - Kimberly P.

"I came to Warner Norcross & Judd in December 2012 after I realized my marriage was over. I was able to have Lucy Araj take my case on and felt from the start this would be an efficient and fast process. My ex-husband and I were able to work out most items on our own and with the advice of Ms. Araj, come to a mutual agreement on how to separate the marital assets. We were so confident in Ms. Araj's abilities that he never hired anyone to represent him. All of my questions and concerns about the process and outcomes were answered in a timely manner. Ms. Araj was able to complete the entire process within the quickest time frame allowed by the State of Michigan. I appreciate her help, advice, and guidance through this period of my life and I am happy to recommend Warner Norcross & Judd to anyone else looking for excellent representation. In fact, so far I have been able to recommend two others who have utilized this firm since and although their situations varied from mine, they have had nothing but great things to say about the firm and their process as well. - Melissa W.
