Meet Jade Edwards-Cureau

Jade Edwards-Cureau has been a licensed attorney since 2006. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan – Flint and her law degree from Michigan State University College of Law. In 2009 Jade received the Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year Award from the State Bar of Michigan. She went on to become an executive council member for the Young Lawyers Section and is currently a member of the Family Law Section of the State Bar.

Jade has focused her legal career almost exclusively on family law. She specializes in child custody, divorce, and child welfare law. She has also worked as a mediator in domestic matters, as well as a Guardian ad Litem in child welfare, divorce, and custody cases. Before entering private practice, she clerked in Genesee County Family Court for the Honorable Duncan M. Beagle. She also worked at The Williams Firm PC, practicing in labor and employment and family law. She has also served as a member of the Genesee County Bar Association, where she has served on the board of directors, the Mallory VanDyne Scott Bar Association, the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan, and the American Bar Association, where she has been active on several committees. Jade has presented multiple times as a faculty member for the Institute of Continuing Legal Education’s Family Law Institute. In her free time, Jade enjoys spending time with her little sister from Big Brothers/Big Sisters and traveling.

Jade’s approach to family law cases is to first assess whether or not there is likely potential for an amicable resolution, or if the case is likely to be highly contentious. Then, she will discuss options and strategies for each approach. 17 years of family law experience has given Jade strong instincts and an uncanny ability to anticipate problems and integrate practical solutions in family law cases. Though she is pleasant and compassionate, she also can transform into a shark in the courtroom when necessary.
