Congratulations to former CMDA attorney Judge Colleen O’Brien who was appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to fill a vacancy on the Michigan Court of Appeals bench. She will serve the remainder of retired Judge Pat Donofrio’s term, which ends Jan. 1, 2017.
Judge O’Brien was an attorney at our Firm until 1998 when she was elected to serve on the Oakland Circuit bench. She is the presiding judge of the court’s civil-criminal division and president of the Michigan Judges Association. We wish Judge O’Brien all the best as she embarks on this new and challenging journey.
