Firm Co-Founder and Managing Partner Attorney Michael J. Willis was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America© 2020. Driven entirely by peer review, Best Lawyers® helps consumers recognize high-quality lawyers in private practice around the U.S.
A Singular Reward for Work Well Done
Attorney Willis is proud to continue his tradition of inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© for 2020. He is also honored to share that he received the 2020 Corporate Law “Lawyer of the Year” award in Kalamazoo. Best Lawyers® does not throw this distinction around lightly: One per practice area is awarded in each community the organization covers. Our team at Willis Law congratulates Attorney Willis for this achievement.
A Marker of Peer Respect
Best Lawyers® honorees are identified first through a nomination process. Peers submit the names of high-performing local attorneys across various practice areas for consideration. Nominees are compiled into lists sorted by location and practice area, and the previous year’s crop of Best Lawyers® may vote on the relevant ballots. No lawyer can vote for themself; they rank their peers based on whether they would consider referring a case to them. After the voting period ends, the highest-scoring lawyers qualify for the next year’s list.
Since 1983, Best Lawyers® has been recognizing the highest-performing attorneys in each practice area, as identified by their peers. For this 27th edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, they reviewed 8.3 million votes and recognized 62,000 outstanding lawyers worldwide.
Work with an Award-Winning Lawyer
Along with his recognition by Best Lawyers®, Attorney Willis has also been listed in Super Lawyers® and has earned an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell®. He has been published in The Michigan Business Law Journal and spoken in front of many organizations in the Kalamazoo area to share his advice regarding estate planning and asset protection. Attorney Willis practices Business (Corporate) Law, Probate, Estate & Trust Law, and Real Estate & Construction Law.
