Zausmer Names April Moore and Bryan Padgett Elected Shareholders

We are pleased to announce that April E. Moore and Bryan R. Padgett have been made shareholders in the firm.

April and Bryan are both talented litigators who deliver outstanding results and represent the next generation of exceptional lawyers at Zausmer. Our clients have come to rely on them, and they are an integral part of the firm’s future.

A cum laude graduate of Wayne State University Law School, April joined Zausmer in 2013, and devotes her litigation practice to defending complex tort, insurance fraud, subrogation, ERISA, and first-party no-fault and third-party matters. She often presents on insurance law topics and is highly regarded by her peers, as evidenced by her selection to the list of Michigan’s Top Lawyers in 2015 and recognition as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2016.

Bryan concentrates his practice on insurance defense, with several successful outcomes in automobile negligence, premises liability, and other personal injury actions. He graduated from University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, where he taught Advanced Advocacy as an adjunct professor. Bryan joined the firm in 2012 and has been recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star each year since 2013. Bryan is also a frequent speaker at Insurance Institute of Michigan programs.

We are proud to add April and Bryan to our shareholder ranks, and hope you will join us in congratulating them on this achievement!
