Following is a statement from Family Law Attorneys in Support of Judge Lisa Gorcyca:

Jan 06, 2016, 12:32 ET from Lippitt O'Keefe Gornbein, PLLC

BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Family law is one of the most difficult areas of practice. Judges and attorneys have to deal with sensitive and often contentious issues. These include child custody, child support, parenting time, spousal support, and the division of assets and debts. These issues are compounded by the emotional turmoil of unhappy people who may be worried or resentful of the fact that they are going through a divorce in the first place. Domestic violence, parental alienation, difficult personalities, or a combination of all three, only further complicate these cases. Too often, judges see good people on their worst behavior.

We are all attorneys who regularly practice family law in Michigan's Oakland County and appear before the Honorable Lisa Gorcyca. We can attest to her compassion for families and her desire to zealously uphold the law. She considers all arguments before making a decision and she does not rush to judgment. Her greatest concern is the best interest of the children involved in divorce, custody, and parenting time disputes.

Judge Gorcyca has served on the Family Court bench for nearly eight years and has gained a reputation as being a conscientious and even-handed judge. She treats litigants and attorneys with courtesy and respect.

Recently, we believe that there has been a rush to judgment concerning a particularly public case. As practitioners who have dedicated our careers to family law, we are offering our support to Lisa Gorcyca, both as a jurist and as an individual.
