Aging In Michigan - December 2021

Honors, Awards and Leadership Most of All

This year, as in all years past, many CT Lawyers were named “Super Lawyers,” Best Lawyers,” “Leading Lawyers,” “Lawyers of the Year,” and given many other accolades too numerous to be list here, (without boring you to death).

And Since we can’t get to everyone, and since leadership is the hallmark of CT, we do want to make note of four events and honors that we are especially proud about:

Maria Messina Wiersma was elected Chairperson of the Board of Directors for ARC of Michigan.  That’s right!  Chair of the State ARC Boards.  Way to Go Maria!

Michelle Lane was picked as one of the Michigan Lawyers Weekly, “Leaders of the Law” for 2021.  One of only 25 Lawyers to be selected.  Michelle is all that for sure.

Jim Spica moved up in the chain of officers in the Probate and Este Planning Section of the State Bar.  This year, Jim is serving as Vice Chair person of the Probate Council, which body represents all of Michigan’s probate and estate planning lawyers with respect to things like, educating the membership, developing new laws, and addressing the decisions of Michigan appellate courts.  Heavy lifting for sure.  Thanks Jim.

Finally, Ernscie Augustin is at least in the running for the most involved lawyers at CT this yeas, as she is serving on both the Ingham County Bar Board, the Ingham County Young Lawyers Board, and also the President of the Davis Dunning Bar Association.  Ernscie brings honor on us all.

This is us.

you can go to our website at and read about the many ways that CT lawyers contribute to their communities and the practice of law.  We can’t begin to list all of those details here.  So we these few examples of which we are particularly proud.
