Right to Counsel Award presented


The Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan (CDAM) recently hosted its annual awards dinner at the Auburn Hills Marriott Pontiac. During the event, Detroit attorney Gerald Evelyn (center) was honored with this year’s Right to Counsel Award. A graduate of Michigan State University, Evelyn attended Antioch School of Law in Washington, D.C. He began his legal career at Wayne County Neighborhood Legal Services and then the State Defender’s Office. In 1981, he went into private practice with his mentor, Myzell Sowell Sr., a noted criminal defense attorney. Among those on hand to congratulate Evelyn were Lisa Kirsch Satawa (left) of Kirsch Daskas Law Group PLLC, and Clinton Township attorney Samuel Churikian (right).
