Attorney James P. Feeney of the Dykema law firm in Bloomfield Hills, has received the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel’s Annual Excellence In Defense Award.
The award honors civil defense counsel who have promoted the practice of the defense bar and the representation of their clients both in and outside of the courtroom through their professionalism, intelligence, creativity, judgment, personality, sensitivity, civility, advocacy skills, community involvement, and efforts to educate younger attorneys. It also recognizes their contributions beyond their normal roles as an advocate.
Feeney, of Birmingham, regularly tackles high-profile, high-stakes litigation matters as a “go to” trial attorney for the world’s largest companies. During the course of his nearly 40-year career, Feeney has been involved in more than 1,500 cases. His experience includes trials of high-stakes matters for the automotive industry, financial institutions, media companies, real estate developers, and equipment leasing and insurance companies.
He will be honored during an awards banquet hosted by the MDTC on May 15 at The H Hotel in Midland.
