Schultz is “Lawyer of the Year”

For the third time in the last five years, Stephen Schultz was selected by his peers as “Lawyer of the Year” in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America.  Mr. Schultz is one of two attorneys in the firm designated as a 2018 “Lawyer of the Year” and one of five firm attorneys recognized by Best Lawyers in America as preeminent attorneys.

Mr. Schultz was named the 2018 Mid-Michigan “Lawyer of the Year” in Employment Law.  Only one lawyer in each subject area and region of the state is honored with a “Lawyer of the Year” award, based upon the collective opinion of other Michigan Employment and Labor Law lawyers.  His “Lawyer of the Year” acclaim is in attrition to his recognition in the 2018 Edition of Best Lawyers in America for expertise in Municipal Law, Employment Law – Management, and Labor Law – Management.

Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC regularly represents more than 150 municipalities across the state of Michigan in their legal matters.

“We are honored that Steve has again been recognized by the legal community as the Employment Law ‘Lawyer of the Year,’ said Mark Burzych, President of the firm. “Steve is the best employment law lawyer in the state, so it’s no surprise that others hold Steve in high esteem. His ‘three-peat’ selection by The Best Lawyers in America validates our firm’s philosophy of providing legal services: focus on what we do best and be the best at what we do!”

Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC, which was founded in 2008 by Mr. Schultz and 3 other partners, has grown to 14 attorneys and 9 professional staff. The firm brings together legal experts with more than 200 years of combined experience in several specialties to serve its clients in four core practice areas: municipalities, drain commissioners and public authorities; franchise businesses; public and private employers; and electric, gas, water and sewer public utilities.
