Join Us in Welcoming Padma Raj
Turning life’s challenges into compassionate legal solutions.
“We’re all going to experience aging and challenging times at some level. My goal is to help individuals move through these times, focusing on what’s important to them–their loved ones, health, and life’s work. I was drawn to this area of practice to help people navigate the administration while they grieve.”
Originating from Michigan, Padma Raj is a seasoned attorney with a diverse background in law. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Michigan State University and has been awarded a Juris Doctor cum laude and Master of Laws in Taxation from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School.
