Eric Stevens has over 23 years’ experience in the field of family law, juvenile delinquency, neglect/abuse and criminal law. Eric truly understands the court system, having served as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, a Family Court Referee, the Friend of the Court and Family Court Administrator for Muskegon County. Statewide, Eric served as the President of the Friend of the Court Association representing local Friend of the Courts in Lansing. Eric uses this extensive knowledge to expertly navigate the court system, not only in Muskegon, but across the state and get the best results for you and your family. 

Eric also has a strong passion to advocate for adoptive parents, grandparents raising grandchildren and foster parents. Throughout, his career, Eric has witnessed the awesome commitment, dedication and love that adoptive parents, grandparents and foster parents have for children in their care, only to see these families being mistreated and frankly abused by the system. Eric wants to give these caretakers and families a voice, provide them with security and advocate for the services that they are entitled, so that their family and children can be successful.

 Eric is excited to be a part of Shon Cook Law and serving families in West Michigan.
