Jeremiah Buffalo Wirgau grew up in Posen, Michigan, and his roots run deep in the community. After receiving his philosophy degree from the University of Michigan, Jeremiah accepted a position with a Chapter 13 trustee in Detroit. While there, he was exposed to an exceedingly efficient and professional legal environment and had the opportunity to see first-hand how bankruptcy cases made their way through the Bankruptcy Court. However, Jeremiah realized that in order to be able to best positively impact the lives of those going through turmoil, he would have to attend law school and become an attorney.
While attending Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Jeremiah was fortunate to find part-time positions with experienced bankruptcy attorneys who graciously shared their knowledge and experience. Shortly after receiving his J.D. in Business Transactions, Jeremiah accepted a position with a creditor rights firm and handled bankruptcy, foreclosure, and evictions matters for mortgage lenders. Jeremiah has had the unique opportunity to see the bankruptcy process from the debtor, creditor, and trustee sides.
Having close ties to northern Michigan, Jeremiah was troubled to see that so many folks in the area were in need of affordable legal counsel. Jeremiah has opened an office in Rogers City, MI, that allows him to provide services in northern Michigan while continuing to practice in the Detroit area.
Since opening his own firm, Jeremiah has handled matters pertaining to divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, law suits, personal protection order, as well as criminal matters. While he still maintains a bankruptcy practice, the need for more was quickly evident. Jeremiah is well versed in the govering statutes, jurisprudence, and MCR.
