A cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland College Park’s University Honors Program in 2001, Ms. Tuke returned to her native New York City to attend Fordham University School of Law in Lincoln Center.

This experience was instrumental in shaping her into an effective and efficient litigator, adept at navigating the nuanced complexities of divorce, family, and civil cases in Southeast Michigan.

In 2009, Ms. Tuke founded The Tuke Firm, establishing a practice that combines her extensive courtroom experience with a compassionate approach to divorce and family law.
