From nominations received state-wide, the Michigan Lawyers Weekly panel selects only 30 lawyers to hold this title annually. Selections are made by considering noteworthy cases, firm participation, and community and/or bar association efforts. Selected lawyers are among a variety of practice areas, ranging from commercial litigation to intellectual property to estate planning.
According to Michigan Lawyers Weekly, “Chosen from dozens of nominations, these honorees have spent less than a decade in practice, and display the ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments to set them apart among their peers.”
