Attorney Profile

After years of practicing with well-established firms in Southwest Michigan, Saraphoena B. (Austin) Koffron co-founded Austin & Koffron to advance her passion for family law.

Family law matters affect more than just those directly involved.   The trickle-down stress of a divorce, custody, or post-judgment case impacts a person's ability to focus on employment, manage their business, maintain friendships, and, most of all, raise their children. 

With a belief that knowledge is power, Saraphoena takes the time to educate and counsel her clients through various family law processes, which include structuring cost-effective litigation strategies and building a problem-solving method for settlement.  Having a skilled representative like Saraphoena take the lead and manage the case trajectory relieves clients from shouldering all their burdens – enabling them to focus on living life, instead of living the litigation.
