Oshel Law, P.C., formerly Michael V. Oshel, P.C. is dedicated to personal service in concentrated areas of the practice of law.  I handle cases in all areas of family law including divorce, custody & visitation, adoption and child support.  I also handle probate, including death and guardianship, criminal and car accident cases.

My law practice was established in 1976.  I take only those cases to which I can devote sufficient time and that I choose to handle.  I believe a satisfied client sends more business to my office.  The best way to have a satisfied client is to listen, spend sufficient time, word hard, and be straight forward.  If I sound like your kind of lawyer, please call or e-mail this office about your case.  Our staff, including Debbie, Vickie, Charlene, and I, are here to serve you.

I married Nancy Cox on February 16, 1980 in Harrisburg, IL.
