Prior to joining the firm, Dupler clerked for a judge in the Ingham County Circuit Court Family Law Division.

A member of the firm’s Family Law Division, Dupler works closely with division leader Bernie Finn to represent clients who need an attorney during their divorce, child support, spousal support, child custody, property division, or other family law matters.
