Southfield, MI, November 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Collins, Einhorn, Farrell & Ulanoff Shareholder and President Michael J. Sullivan as the “Detroit Area Best Lawyers Professional Malpractice Lawyer of the Year” for 2011.
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”
Sullivan has nearly 30 years of litigation and trial experience. In the professional liability arena, he has defended attorneys, physicians, accountants, architects, engineers, real estate appraisers, real estate brokers and title agents in defense of significant claims involving personal injury, property damage and business loss.
The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law alum also has substantial experience in product liability litigation, and maintains an active general civil litigation practice, including business disputes, insurance disputes, and personal injury defense. In the field of business litigation, Sullivan represents parties in commercial disputes, including Tier One and Tier Two automotive suppliers in disputes with vendors and purchasers.
Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 17th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2011) is based on more than 3.1 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.
The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
“We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession,” said Best Lawyers President Steven Naifeh. “We would like to congratulate Michael J. Sullivan on being selected as the ‘Detroit Area Best Lawyers Professional Malpractice Lawyer of the Year’ for 2011.”
