Danielle DePriest Named to the 2017 Class of “Up & Coming Lawyers”

Each year, Michigan Lawyers Weekly selects a class of “Up & Coming Lawyers,” a collection of attorneys in their first ten years of practice who are setting the standard among their peers.

We are pleased to announce that Zausmer associate Danielle DePriest is among those selected to the “Up & Coming Lawyers” Class of 2017.

Michigan Lawyers Weekly selects practitioners who display determination and ambition and go above and beyond to establish a name for themselves. Danielle will be featured in a Michigan Lawyers Weekly supplement and will be honored with the rest of the class at a special awards luncheon at the Detroit Marriott in Troy on December 7, 2017.

Danielle started with Zausmer as a law clerk and joined the firm as an associate after graduating from Wayne State University Law School in 2015. She represents insurers and individuals in a range of insurance defense cases. Outside of her law practice, she is committed to the community and serves on the Board of Directors for Jewish Family Service of Metro Detroit and NEXTGen Detroit. She also remains involved in the Jewish Bar Association of Michigan and is engaged in the firm’s Associate Development Committee and women’s leadership initiatives.

Congratulations on a well-deserved honor, Danielle!
