Fraser Trebilcock

Fraser Trebilcock is proud to announce the addition of attorneys Jonathan T. Walton Jr. and Laura Donnelly Faussié, formerly of Walton and Donnelly PC, to the firm's Detroit office.

Walton and Faussié founded Walton & Donnelly PC in 1996 and, in the 20-plus years since that time, have enjoyed great success representing national and Michigan-based companies in matters ranging from real estate transactions to complex commercial litigation.

They also have experience representing banks and other lenders in matters such as loan portfolio acquisitions, creditor's rights in bankruptcy workouts and collection and collateral recovery matters, including receiverships and foreclosures of industrial and commercial real estate.

For the past several years, their firm has worked closely with Fraser Trebilcock under a strategic alliance agreement to expand the breadth of services available to their clients. This endeavor proved so successful that this year Walton and Faussié decided to close their firm and become full time shareholders with Fraser Trebilcock.
