Succeeding in federal court


 The Wolverine Bar Association and ICLE hosted a joint luncheon seminar titled “Elevating Your Practice: How to Build Upon State Court Experience and Succeed in the Federal Courts” on Thursday, March 20, at the Detroit offices of Bodman LLP.  

At the program, Elizabeth Stafford (second from left) of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Detroit attorney James Feinberg (center), and Elisa Angeli-Palizzi (second from right) of Miller Canfield provided attendees with insight into how to expand their primarily state court practice to do more work in federal court.  

Happy to welcome the speakers were Wolverine Bar President Ronda Tate (left) of Lewis & Munday PC and Rebekah Page-Gourley (right), ICLE staff attorney.  

Attendees also learned about the ICLE online resources that can make their practice more effective and efficient, and they heard about ways to boost reputation and credentials by getting involved as an ICLE contributor.
