About the Go To Lawyers Program

This is the first time Michigan Lawyers Weekly has identified top construction lawyers in Michigan since the program began in 2020. In past years, it has recognized lawyers who specialize in employment law, real estate and condo law, medical malpractice law, business law, and intellectual property law.

Lawyers are peer-nominated, then selected based on their experience, accomplishments, creative thinking, and proven record of success.
