Mr. Groat is a native of Petoskey, MI, and is a 1996 graduate of Petoskey High School. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, in 2000, where he majored in Political Science and received minors in Business Law and Regulations as well as Economics.

The goal is always to attempt to resolve matters amicably first, but Travis is not your average lawyer. Many lawyers have never called a witness to the stand or cross-examined someone. While Travis is a collaboratively trained divorce and custody attorney, he does much litigating. With a proven winning track record of 20 years, let Travis be your warrior and fight for you and your family.
