Practice State



Appellate work in family law, or any legal field, requires specialized knowledge of frequently changing substantive law and procedural rules. I combine a solid knowledge of substantive family law on issues such as property division, child support, custody, alimony, etc., with more than 30 years of experience handling appeals in the Michigan Court of Appeals and Michigan Supreme Court. I can work alone or with your trial attorney to maximize your position on appeal. 

Note: Scott Bassett is licensed to practice law only in Michigan and handles only Michigan legal matters. He is not licensed to practice law in any other state and does not handle legal matters from any state other than Michigan.


Practice is limited to Michigan family law appeals and consultation in Michigan trial court matters where an appeal is anticipated.
