Tonight, my partner Bob Raitt will be speaking to a Wayne State University Law School trial advocacy class that’s taught by Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Elizabeth Gleicher. Bob will be giving advice on how to be a successful personal injury lawyer and how to excel at litigation — even as a young lawyer. Judge Gleicher’s trial advocacy class features a real auto accident injury case as an example, and Bob will discuss how he would approach the fact pattern of the auto accident.
Bob is a Wayne State Law School alum, and this marks the fifth straight year that our lawyers have volunteered to help teach the auto accident problem at Wayne Law School. Volunteering our time and mentoring law school students is a great way to support and help train our next generation of Michigan personal injury lawyers.
Sometimes it’s lost in insurance company propaganda, but being a Michigan personal injury lawyer is rewarding because of all of the people we help and the lives we change. It’s rewarding because we play a vital role in society. Injury lawyers are entrusted to help the public when they are injured or taken advantage of. I’d rather help a person and make a real difference in someone’s life, than work for an insurance company. Tonight, Bob will discuss what it’s like representing auto accident victims in Michigan. And he will review the current state of Michigan’s complicated, ever-changing No-Fault insurance laws.
But it’s important for law students to realize that becoming a great lawyer starts with the desire to help people.
