Jeffrey Lance Abood

Jeffrey Lance Abood graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University and earned his law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and follows in a long family tradition of serving people as a litigator. 

Based in Birmingham Michigan, Jeffrey practices in the areas of family law (including divorce, child custody and support) and criminal defense (including alcohol and drug related offenses and white collar crime). Jeffrey is one of Michigan’s premiere Divorce attorneys, and is a favored litigator for Nationally known sports teams.

His contacts and relationships make him a force as a legal practitioner, and his attention to detail has led him to lead counsel on a number of high-profile cases that have garnered international attention, including the wrongful termination case of a teacher, a child custody dispute, and representation of high-profile professional athletes and elected officials.

In addition to being dynamic in the courtroom, he has authored numerous articles on the subject of divorce, and both local and national media regularly look to him to contribute to or opine on the subject. The courts, meanwhile, appreciate his skill and ability to resolve complex disputes. He is active in serving the community, and is a proud member of several charitable and community boards, and has served as a director of the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce.
