Fahey is Municipal “Lawyer of the Year”

A member of Okemos-based law firm, Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC, has been selected as “Lawyer of the Year” by peers for inclusion in the 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, which is annually published by U.S. News & World Report.

William K. Fahey has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2016 Lansing metropolitan area Municipal Law “Lawyer of the Year.” The “Lawyer of the Year” designation is based upon the collective opinion of the mid-Michigan area’s municipal lawyers.

“We are honored that Bill has been recognized by the legal community as ‘Lawyer of the Year’ in Municipal Law. This marks the second straight year that Bill has been recognized as ‘Lawyer of the Year.’ We think Bill is the best municipal lawyer in the state and it is nice to know that others hold Bill in the same high esteem. We also believe it validates our philosophy of providing legal services: focus on what we do best and be the best at what we do!” said Mark Burzych, President of the firm.
