Plunkett Cooney partner D. Jennifer Andreou was recently named to the 2021 class of Go To Lawyers for medical malpractice law as determined by Michigan Lawyers Weekly (MiLW).

“Jenny is an outstanding trial attorney, and she is very deserving of this award,” said Thomas P. Vincent, the firm’s President and CEO. “No one has established herself more as a go-to lawyer than Jenny. She always goes above and beyond for her clients and, as the managing partner of our Detroit office, she knows how to get things done.” 

Andreou will be featured, along with 14 other attorneys, in a special section that will appear in the October 25 print and digital editions of MiLW, an industry publication serving the state’s legal community. In its second year, Michigan’s Go To Lawyers is a peer-nomination program that recognizes the top lawyers across the state in a given practice area.

Attorneys are selected as a Go To Lawyer based on expertise in their field, including how well-versed they are in the nuances of the case law, statutes and regulations clients will encounter. Selection criteria also includes a successful record with cases and/or transactions, high referral rate based on expertise and accomplishments, and creative problem solving that identifies all options for clients. Nominated lawyers are those whose colleagues would refer to a friend or use themselves in that field of expertise.
