Collins Einhorn Farrell PC is pleased to announce that partner David C. Anderson has been named a 2016 Leader in the Law by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. Anderson, selected for his dedication, leadership, and going above and beyond the call in support of his clients and his firm, is one of 30 distinguished lawyers who were chosen to receive this prestigious award. “They are the lawyers in Michigan setting the example for other lawyers,” writes Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s James K. Williams, Jr.
A shareholder at Collins Einhorn Farrell, Anderson has practiced for nearly two decades, defending a wide variety of professional liability claims ranging from legal malpractice to claims against accountants, insurance agents, and real estate appraisers. He has also successfully defended numerous corporations against product liability claims, including claims involving wrongful death and serious personal injury.
Anderson has become a nationally recognized leader in the industry through his successes in the courtroom and through his contributions to the legal community. Early on in his career, David began garnering recognition through accolades such as Michigan Defense Trial Counsel’s Golden Gavel Award and numerous recognitions from Super LawyersTM and Best Lawyers of America®. This year, he was recognized by Best Lawyers in America as the Lawyer of the Year in the State of Michigan for his work in Professional Liability Defense.
Anderson has made a notable impact through his diligent service to the bar, contributing his time to a number of legal associations and groups, including the Oakland County Bar Association, where he has served on the Board of Directors for the better part of the last 10 years. Anderson currently serves as President-Elect of the Board, and will be sworn in as President of the Oakland County Bar Association at its annual meeting in June of 2016.
“Clients from all over the country entrust their legal matters to David,” states Michael J. Sullivan, President of Collins Einhorn Farrell PC. “He has the ability to stay cool and in control under very trying circumstances, and has a confident way of handling both clients and opposing counsel. His success in the courtroom and at the bargaining table is testament to the depth of his talent. His selection as a 2016 Leader in the Law is well deserved.”
Anderson will be formally honored at an awards ceremony hosted by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on March 17th at Detroit Marriott Troy, and will be profiled in the March 21st edition of Michigan Lawyers Weekly.
