Six Named to Michigan Super Lawyer®, Rising Star® List

 

Foley & Mansfield is pleased to announce that five attorneys in the firm’s Detroit office have been named to the 2018 Michigan Super Lawyers® and Rising Star® Lists.

Recognized on the Super Lawyers® list is Detroit Managing Partner Howard I. Wallach for General Litigation, partner Gary D. Sharp for Product Liability Defense, partner Melinda A. Balian for Employment Litigation Defense and partner Gregory M. Meihn for Employment and Labor.  Named to the Rising Star® list for Employment & Labor is partner Scott S. Holmes.

Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. Rising Stars follows a similar process to recognize up-and-coming attorneys who are age 40 or younger, or who have been in practice for 10 years or less. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in a state receive this recognition.
