Denise Alexander-Pyle, a native and long-time resident of suburban Detroit, resides in Marion, Indiana with her husband of 25 years, Stephen in the unique home they built in 2006 after he retired from General Motors and returned to his hometown to assist in running the family farms. As an attorney for now over 41 years, Denise continued to commute between her prestigious boutique family law practice in Birmingham, Michigan, and Marion until September of 2015 when God and circumstances required that she remain in Marion full time, where her heart, their family, all reside. She maintains an office in Marion, where she can still practice some law, but with time allotted to continue to provide service to her community and always enjoy her grandchildren and other hobbies, such as cooking, art, and writing.
Denise received her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan and her law degree from the Detroit College of Law, now known as Michigan State University School of Law. However, it was her sister’s high conflict divorce when Denise was still in high school that compelled her to alter her career choice to become a journalist and instead becomes a divorce attorney. As an expert in the field of family law, her compassion and common sense personal counseling and coaching skills were actually her most significant asset to help clients through a crisis period in their life.
Although raised and still a practicing Jew, Denise has been a self-directed student of spirituality since she was 14 and also attends church with her husband describing herself as a New Way Jew, in part because she sees Jesus as the Way to God and understands that love and Christ consciousness are an integral part of man’s existence on Earth.
