Collins Einhorn Farrell PC is pleased to announce that attorney Lynn B. Sholander has been included in Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s Up & Coming Lawyers class of 2021. Lynn was one of thirty honorees selected via committee based on criteria which include having established a name for themselves, going above and beyond, and displaying the ambition, drive, determination, and accomplishments that set them apart from their peers. Only attorneys in their first ten years in practice are eligible for this prestigious award.
Lynn’s practice primarily focuses on appellate and post-verdict litigation. She also has significant experience with general civil litigation, especially drafting and arguing complex motions in state and federal court. Lynn is also an active participant in many initiatives that advance CEF. She currently serves as the editor for the firm’s blog, Driving Forward. This position involves guiding content strategy and writing engaging content to highlight our firm’s general and automotive liability expertise. Lynn also cares about promoting diversity efforts within the firm and in the greater legal community. She currently serves as a member of CEF’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, focusing her efforts on the organization and communication of the firm’s efforts and beliefs.
Lynn is an active leader in the legal community, where she participates in and leads several associations and groups. As a member of the Oakland County Bar Association, Lynn is involved in the Professional Development Committee, where she assists in planning seminars and events for attorneys to improve their skills. Lynn also contributes her efforts to the State Bar of Michigan, serving as a member of the Appellate Practice Section, where she was recently elected as a council member. In this role, Lynn shapes policies for appellate practice in Michigan and provides insight to other attorneys in her field. Most recently, she served as a co-panelist for a seminar on how to successfully litigate cases in the Michigan Court of Appeals. Lynn is also a member of the District I Character and Fitness Committee, where she interviews applicants for the State Bar of Michigan and prepares written recommendations for the Standing Committee on Character and Fitness. Lynn is also a member of the Detroit Bar Association.
Outside of the office, Lynn prioritizes community service, spending much of her free time as a Volunteer Attorney at MACC Legal (sliding scale legal aid organization in Detroit), where she provides legal consultation for underserved individuals during the clinic’s Advice and Counsel Days. She also mentors several students and recent graduates from Wayne State University Law School.
CEF Shareholder, Mike Cook, states: “Lynn Sholander is the epitome of a Michigan Lawyers Weekly Up and Coming Lawyer. Many of Michigan’s appellate judges know her and the few who don’t will very soon. Lynn is a thoughtful and thorough advocate with a penchant for problem solving. Equally important, Lynn carries herself with unparalleled professionalism and approachability that has already made her a leader in several volunteer organizations. Lynn is destined to have a remarkable legal career in Michigan.”
