Biography

Mekel's is dedicated to helping individuals and families navigate the complexities of divorce and custody matters.  

She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Albion College in 1997.  With a background in business and banking, Mekel relocated to Washington DC where she worked for the Inspector General's Office of the FDIC while attending law school.  After graduating from the Catholic University Law School in 2000, she returned home to Michigan where she began using her financial expertise to advise parties in divorce litigation.
