Co-parenting. It's not a competition between two homes. It's a collaboration of parents doing what is best for the kids.

Kendra Ortega


Kendra has a passion for helping families through difficult times. Prior to her legal career, she worked with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services where she was able to gain the compassion and knowledge to help families navigate through a complex system in times of need. Now, she guides clients through a different, yet still complex system - family court.

As an only child, Kendra developed an ability to keep herself entertained. She would put on theater, music, and dance shows in her backyard where neighbors came to enjoy the show; at least until the batteries in her beloved “boombox” could no longer hold on. Her love for theater and public speaking serves her well as an attorney as she advocates for her clients in court.

After completing her undergraduate degree in music, she went on to attend WMU Thomas M. Cooley Law School and graduated magna cum laude. She spent two years at a small firm in Grand Rapids, and now Kendra has opened her own solo practice in Holland, MI.
