Attorneys make statewide class of Up & Coming Lawyers
A statewide legal newspaper has named nine West Michigan attorneys to its 2016 class of Up & Coming Lawyers.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly, based in West Bloomfield Township, posted last week the names of 30 attorneys who are part of this year’s Up & Coming class.
The honorees, who have all practiced for 10 years or less, were selected based on their “ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments.”
The attorneys will be celebrated at a Dec. 1 luncheon at the Detroit Marriott Troy hotel.
Their profiles will be published in the Dec. 5 edition of Michigan Lawyers Weekly. The special section also will be distributed at the event.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly, or MiLW, founded in 1986, is dedicated to providing court opinions, verdicts, settlements, appellate decisions and legal news to enhance the practice of law in Michigan.
