Introduction to Liisa R. Speaker's Blog

Posted on Tuesday, May 8, 2018

I am an appellate attorney in Lansing, Michigan and wanted a blog to share commentary on recent cases that I thought were interesting or significant. My idea for the blog arose after I noticed that during my daily reading of the e-journal, I would find at least one or two cases every week that gave me pause to consider the decision, print the case, and/or discuss the case with colleagues. I hope this blog will become a forum for attorneys to discuss appellate decisions that affect our clients.

Do you have an appeal?
