Attention Oakland County lawyers: This year five attorneys are running for two seats on the State Bar of Michigan Board of Commissioners. That means your vote matters more than ever in this race. You should have received an electronic ballot for the 2017 SBM elections via e-mail. If you don't have an e-mail address on file, you will receive a paper ballot. You have until 11:59 p.m. on June 15 to cast your votes (or get your ballot in the mail to be counted).
The Oakland County Board candidates are David Anderson, of Southfield, a shareholder at Collins Einhorn Farrell PC, with a practice dedicated primarily to defending Michigan lawyers and law firms against professional liability claims; Timothy Burns, of Clawson, a solo criminal defense attorney; James Low, of Southfield, managing partner of The Dollar Law Firm who concentrates his practice in representing medical providers in no-fault cases; Daniel Quick, of Troy, a trial lawyer with Dickinson Wright and national leader of the firm's commercial litigation practice; and Rasul Raheem, of Bloomfield Hills, an attorney at Plunkett Cooney in the Banking, Creditors' Rights, and Restructuring Group.
