Michigan Law alumnus named to Michigan Supreme Court post

Attorney Daniel C. Brubaker has been named Chief Commissioner of the Michigan Supreme Court.

Brubaker will oversee the work of the Supreme Court Commissioners, the Court's permanent legal staff. Commissioners review applications for leave to appeal to the Court, and provide research and recommendations to the Court on a wide variety of matters.

Chief Justice Robert P. Young, Jr., said that Brubaker "meets the exacting standards one must have for this position of highest trust: impeccable legal scholarship and great integrity."

A magna cum laude 1987 graduate of Albion College, Brubaker earned a law degree with honors from the University of Michigan Law School in 1992.

Brubaker began his legal career in 1992 with the Grand Rapids law firm of Mika, Meyers, Beckett & Jones, P.L.C., where he was an associate in the firm's litigation department. He became a member of the firm in 1999, specializing in family, labor, and local government law. He served on the firm's management committee for two years, administering a firm of 40 attorneys, as well as staff.

Brubaker joined the Supreme Court Commissioners' Office in 2003. He resides in Lowell with his wife, Tamara Brubaker-Salcedo.
