Firm adds two attorneys to its Transportation Law Practice Group


Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest law firms, recently added two attorneys, Hussein S. Berri and Ashley S. Dickey, to its Transportation Law Practice Group.

A member of the firm’s Detroit office, Berri focuses his practice in the areas of first-party no-fault and third-party motor vehicle negligence. He has experience handling general liability defense matters, including first- and third-party automobile and premises liability cases and insurance defense litigation.  

Berri is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and the Oakland County, American and Detroit bar associations. He also volunteers at Project Clean Slate, which is a city of Detroit initiative focused on assisting residents with expunging their criminal records in order to obtain better job opportunities.

Berri is a 2019 cum laude graduate of the Michigan State University College of Law. While there, he served as a judicial clerk for the Hon. Judge David Allen in the Third Judicial Circuit of Michigan. Berri received his undergraduate degree from Eastern Michigan University in 2015.

Dickey is a member of the firm’s Bloomfield Hills office who focuses her practice primarily on insurance-related claims involving first- and third-party motor vehicle negligence.

In addition to her transportation law practice, Dickey has experience handling claims involving premises liability, insurance coverage, subrogation, worker’s compensation, environmental and toxic tort liability and construction and employment law.

Selected a “Rising Star” by Michigan Super Lawyers magazine for the past two years, Dickey is admitted to practice in the state and federal courts in Michigan. She is a member of the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel, the Oakland County Bar Association and the State Bar of Michigan.

Dickey received her law degree, cum laude, from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School in 2014 and her undergraduate degree from Oakland University in 2009.
