Michelle L. Eisenmenger opened her own practice after 15 years of practicing solely in family law at a boutique law firm, following her 2003 graduation from the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville with a Juris Doctor degree. She is dually licensed in Kentucky and Indiana and has practiced family law in both jurisdictions for the entirety of her career.
Family law practice requires the duality of compassion and strength. Michelle L. Eisenmenger epitomizes that duality, empathizing with the struggle of her clients in family law disputes, while simultaneously providing the strength and advocacy to achieve the best possible outcomes for them.
Unlike many family law attorneys, Michelle L. Eisenmenger went to law school knowing that she wanted to practice family law, having witnessed the struggles of her siblings in their family law disputes and recognizing the positive impact family law attorneys can have during such a difficult time for their clients. Almost twenty years later, she’s thankful for choosing that path as her career has been beyond rewarding.
“I witnessed the emotional and financial devastation that can result from divorce as well as disputes over child custody, visitation and support. In each case, I wished that my brother or sister could achieve a peaceful and speedy resolution and thought this would best be accomplished by attorneys who consider not only the financial, but also the emotional results for their clients and their children.” Having since experienced those difficulties personally, she is especially empathetic for her clients and has become an even more zealous advocate for her clients’ rights and for peace for families.
In 2017, she became a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, a prestigious nationwide organization of only the best family law attorneys, in which applicants must pass rigorous testing and receive the approval of existing Fellows of the Academy in order to receive fellowship. She has lectured around the Commonwealth of Kentucky to fellow attorneys since 2006 and is the author of several articles and treatise chapters on family law issues.
Divorce is a very devastating and vulnerable time and I felt very comfortable with Michelle. She was very thorough, professional, and compassionate. I was very intimidated by the process, but she put me at ease. Highly recommend!
