Brandon Barthelemy has always had a passion for law. He started working for a general practice law firm as a young teenager. There he learned that every person has a story and deserves a listening ear and an open mind. He carries these lessons forward in practice, striving to listen well, without judgment, in order to understand his clients.


One of the most important skills in counseling and advocacy is communication. Brandon graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Science from Suffolk University and then graduated from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School earning his Juris Doctorate. He then took and passed the Michigan Bar and relocated to Grand Rapids in 2015.

Brandon has worked with a wide range of individuals and families to help them with their legal issues.

Brandon welcomes clients with a host of legal issues and prides himself on providing each individual customer and case, be it family, probate, or criminal, with an unsurpassed level of service that exceeds standard expectations.
