About Ian Bolton... Your Lawyer

My primary focus is getting the best results for my clients.

While growing up with a father, uncle, older brother, and several other family members and friends practicing law, I learned many things. However, the one lesson that I’m reminded of on a daily basis is actually something one of my few non-lawyer family members told me: “The trick to being a good lawyer is not knowing how to argue. It’s knowing when to stop arguing.”

I have been practicing law since 2005 with time spent in Michigan, Illinois and Texas. Whether I was a law clerk at one of the most utilized bankruptcy courts in the country in Detroit or practicing law at one of the largest firms in the world in Chicago, I have always been surrounded by some of the best legal minds in the country.

In 2015, after all those years working for others, I decided that I was finally in the position to live my lifelong dream running my own firm. That was the birth of the The Bolton Legal Group, and we have been going strong ever since. With my own firm and the team I have assembled, I can now offer the same aggressive and efficient services I offered in the past, but at half the price.

While Bolton Legal Group specialize in many areas of the law, from litigation to bankruptcy to tax appeals to real estate, our true focus is on building relationships with our clients that will last long after the first matter concludes.

We've helped hundreds of my clients, almost all of which remain current clients of the firm, obtain desired results in the following areas:
