    Dana Nessel Named Woman of the Year!

    “Nessel received the award at MiLW’s annual Women in the Law event Sept. 10 at the Detroit Marriott Troy. She was selected by a vote of the 30 members of the Women in the Law Class of 2015, all of whom are featured in this special section.

    Nessel, a criminal defense and family lawyer at Nessel & Kessel Law, represented the plaintiffs in DeBoer v. Snyder, which challenged the Michigan Marriage Amendment and the Michigan Adoption Code. DeBoer was consolidated with three similar cases, and in June, a 5-4 Supreme Court ruled that all states’ same-sex marriage bans were unconstitutional.”
