Attorney Profile

James W. Chryssikos is the founder of James Chryssikos Law Firm, PLLC, based in Troy, Michigan. Focusing his practice almost exclusively on family law, he represents clients throughout the greater Detroit metropolitan area. Mr. Chryssikos assists people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are facing decisions related to the division of marital assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and alimony and child support. Although he handles many of these matters through litigation, he is trained in collaborative divorce, and thus he often helps his clients reach an accord on some of these issues through that alternative dispute resolution method.

Mr. Chryssikos regularly prepares and reviews prenuptial agreements, and he has experience with paternity disputes. In addition to his family law practice, he provides estate planning advice and counsel to clients who are contemplating the preparation of wills, trusts, and health care and financial powers of attorneys, and he has appeared before the probate court with respect to adult guardianship and conservatorship proceedings. The high regard in which Mr. Chryssikos is held by his fellow professionals is reflected in his receipt of an AV Preeminent* peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo.

Mr. Chryssikos attended Michigan State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in political science in 1996. His legal education came at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, where he was active in Moot Court competitions before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2000. Admitted to practice before all Michigan courts, Mr. Chryssikos was a shareholder at another Detroit-area firm before founding his own firm in February 2014.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
