Jordan Ascione-Broad’s area of practice focuses almost exclusively on family law, with matters including custody, child support, parenting time, paternity, adoption, and divorce/annulment both with and without children. Jordan is also well versed in legal separation and the preparation and review of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements; and their enforceability.
Although more of a secondary practice as her passion is in family law, Jordan also handles criminal cases and probate litigation.
Jordan is a trained mediator and applies conflict resolution in her approach to every case as she believes the majority of her cases should be resolved with compromise and communication without the need for expensive and protracted litigation. Jordan believes that no two families are alike, which means every divorce needs to be handled in a way that is practical and appropriate for each case. Accordingly, you will not find Jordan using a cookie-cutter approach, but instead anticipating needs for her clients by assessing both marital and separate property in order to establish a fair and equitable distribution of the marital estate.
Approachable and compassionate, Jordan cares deeply for children and their families and works with the children’s best interests at heart. She is closely involved with everyone she represents, and her clients find her to be responsive and detail-oriented. Jordan spends time with every client to make sure they feel heard, understands the legal process, and know she is their best advocate. She understands the process of divorce is one of the most challenging times a client will experience in their life, and that it is imperative the client has someone who aggressively advocates for their interests.
In the past, Jordan has volunteered her time with at-risk youth and victims of domestic violence. She currently volunteers her time with Child & Family Services of Northwestern Michigan as part of the Legal Aid Program.
Jordan was born and raised in Northern Michigan and feels fortunate she was able to establish her career in Traverse City. When she is not practicing law, she enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, boating, hiking, fly fishing, traveling, and spending time with her husband, her family, and her two dogs.
