"True, we build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures... There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state."

~ John W. Davis

Decades of Experience in the Community

Sharon Brinks graduated from South Christian High School, Calvin College, and Wayne State University Law School.


She began her legal career in West Michigan as a judicial law clerk. In 1993, Sharon left her position at a mid-sized firm to open Brinks & Associates, believing that a law firm of the 21st century can be technologically efficient and reasonably priced while maintaining a personal touch.

Sharon has served the community as a Kentwood City Commissioner and now as the part-time attorney magistrate for Kentwood District Court, as well as through her various seminars, lectures, and published works.


An active world traveler, Sharon has been a leader through international legal exchange programs and participation in a Christian attorney partnership with Nicaraguan lawyers. She has also been involved in work for the Foster Care System both as an attorney and as a licensed foster care parent.
