Jennifer H. Elowsky has been practicing law for more than seventeen years. She is a founding partner of Baker & Elowsky, PLLC. She serves as the lead general counsel for the Charter Township of Milford, the Village of Milford, the Charter Township of Lyon, and the Village of Wolverine Lake.

Jennifer works in matters relating to land use and zoning, and negotiates and prepares municipal development agreements, structures special assessments and related debt collection, drafts and reviews proposed general law and zoning ordinance regulations, and provides legal review for multiple types of public improvement projects, and private condominium, subdivision and other real estate ventures. Her relationship with many communities and governmental agencies provides networking and resource opportunities which facilitate solid, effective and cost efficient municipal representation for multiple client communities, and she appreciates the “grassroots” approach which those communities so often take to most effectively address their concerns and requirements.
