Genevieve Tusa began her legal career in the private sector as an associate attorney at two prominent Michigan law firms, Beier Howlett, P.C. in Bloomfield Hills, and Mason, Steinhardt, Jacobs Perlman & Pesick, P.C. in Southfield. She handled a variety of complex commercial litigation, including municipal law issues and prosecutions, corporate and business litigation, construction litigation, contract disputes and employment law matters.
She then spent three years as an Assistant Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney, where she tried numerous bench and jury trials in the Special Auto Theft Unit, Juvenile Unit and General Trial Unit. She next served for three years as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Michigan in the Civil Rights Division. These positions gave her a depth of litigation experience unusual among family law attorneys.
Ms. Tusa founded Tusa Law, PLC in order to put her skills to use helping families solve their legal conflicts. In addition to her extensive litigation experience, which allows her to advocate powerfully for clients in the courtroom, Ms. Tusa is trained in domestic relations mediation and Collaborative Divorce and is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. Her wide-ranging training gives her the ability to help clients resolve family law disputes in whatever forum best meets their interests.
Currently, in addition to her family law practice, Ms. Tusa is appointed by the Michigan Attorney General’s Office to serve as a Special Assistant Attorney General, handling felony child support cases and other special projects for the State of Michigan.
Ms. Tusa is married and lives with her husband in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. She is the proud mother of a John Carroll University graduate who works in Cleveland for a prominent marketing firm.
