member of the State Bar of Michigan for nearly 32 years, I am a Shareholder with Foster Swift Collins & Smith, PC, in its Southfield office where my areas of practice
include commercial litigation, insurance defense and coverage, sporting and recreational liability, agribusiness law and liability,
and equine law. I have tried cases before juries in 4 states and have been admitted as pro hac vice
counsel in 18 jurisdictions across the country. During my State Bar presidency, business continued with the assistance
of lawyers in my firm and with the cooperation of fellow counsel and judges.
from my law practice, I enjoy speaking and lecturing on liability, insurance, and risk management at seminars, conventions,
CLE programs, and conferences across the country. I also enjoy writing and wrote 2
books and contributed to or co-authored 4 ABA books, most recently in 2009 and 2011. My writings include about 400 articles
on legal subjects. Right now, I'm writing a book for the American Bar Association.
I graduated from Emory College in 1983 and Emory Law School in 1986. On a personal
level, my father was a lawyer, and my husband is a lawyer. As for hobbies, I have a strong interest in
horses and horseback riding.
