Law firm opens second office
A law firm in the region has expanded its footprint.
West Michigan Law, founded by attorney Adam Zuwerink, said this month it opened an office in Holland, at 493 Century Ln.
The firm opened its first office in 2013 in Muskegon, at 900 Third St.
West Michigan Law, which consists of Zuwerink and office manager Ami Gongalski, specializes in business law, real estate law and estate planning and is focused on the transactional side of law.
Zuwerink said he opened the Holland office to capitalize on the business growth of Ottawa County, but also because of changing family circumstances.
“My family and I moved to the Holland area last year when my wife accepted a teaching position at Zeeland Public Schools, and the time was right to add a second office location to better serve our expanding client base in Ottawa County,” he said.
“The economic climate in Ottawa County is second to none in Michigan, and it has been a blast getting to know so many innovative entrepreneurs in the area.”
He said he and Gongalski will work out of both the Holland and Muskegon offices.
Zuwerink said his initial goal when launching the firm in 2013 was to deliver legal services to clients in a faster, more efficient way, using email and the internet to facilitate research and communication.
“While the role of a real estate and business attorney as negotiator and counselor has not changed, the use of technology has greatly impacted the way legal services are provided to clients,” he said.
“Through the efficient use of technology resources, I work with my clients to provide legal documents and services at the speed demanded by today’s business owners.”
Zuwerink has been a member of the State Bar of Michigan since 2004.
He holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan and a law degree form the University of Virginia School of Law.
