Firm Details

Founded in 1883, Wheeler Upham has preserved a reputation for quality legal services in a small firm environment. The attorneys of Wheeler Upham are well known in the courtrooms and boardrooms of Michigan. We have spent over 135 years advising individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations and solving their legal problems.   As a firm, we are big enough to bring together a team of lawyers with many diverse skills, yet small enough to provide you with the personalized attention your unique concerns deserve. We offer the benefits of a larger law firm at a more affordable cost. That's why our clients range from individuals to single member limited liability companies to closely-held corporations to Fortune 500 companies.   Our attorneys are expert courtroom advocates and innovative out-of-court problem solvers.   The professionals at Wheeler Upham practice in many different areas of law, but we have in common a commitment to personalized, efficient, and effective legal service.
