You will find a full-suite of legal services at Clarkston Legal; the trade name for the Karlstrom Cooney, LLP law firm.  For all phases of your life, from divorce, estate planning and real estate disputes, to criminal charges, we can help you when it matters most.  Our lawyers will represent you inside and outside the courtroom to develop your best legal options. Along the way, we explain the process with your input, solve your legal problems and plan for your future.

While our lawyers have over 150-years of combined legal experience, and while we know how to prosecute a case in the courtroom in accord with the court rules and rules of evidence, the value we bring to your legal matter is keeping you out of court. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators respected by judges, lawyers, and other legal professionals.  We will bring this skill and experience to bear on your important matter.

Part of our strategic approach to providing legal services involves utilization of associate attorneys and paralegals. This well-trained staff keeps your overall cost down. A senior attorney manages, directs and supervises your file; therefore you benefit from our decades of legal experience.

You may be worried about the cost of your divorce, criminal defense or probate matter.  This is where Clarkston Legal is different. We provide high-quality legal advice for reasonable fees.  Our clients always come first.  If your world is threatened by the stress and uncertainty of a pending or imminent legal conflict, contact our law firm to schedule a free consultation. Things will start getting better immediately.

We are litigators. For the courtroom lawyer, travel is part of the job. Located in Northern Oakland County, our office is less than 30-minutes from both the Genesee County and Oakland County Circuit Courts. We also appear in the Macomb and Wayne County courts, routinely traveling the short distance to Detroit and Mt. Clemens. Over the years, we have forged strong relationships with the judges and court professionals in all of these courts.

About this web site.  Our firm’s web site is unlike any other law firm website.  Since 2003, we have been developing original legal content for this site. Recently, we adopted a responsive design and mobile-ready platform that allows us to control our content; this site is the work-product of our lawyers, not a search engine marketer or information technologist.  Our mission is to add value to our client prospects by getting useful information directly into their hands.  Our site is informative, easy to use, and truly a “work in progress”. We make frequent substantive edits to improve the content of our site.

Law Blogs, practice areas and substantive law links.  Throughout the pages of this site, you will see our progress in getting basic legal information to you, the consumer of legal services.  This is an ongoing process that will never end so long as our law firm represents clients.  We encourage you to look around and explore the pages that are of interest.

If we can be of further assistance, please let us know by contacting Clarkston Legal to schedule a free consultation.
