McCutcheon, Osman join firm's Transportation Law Practice Group


Attorneys Jamie Lynn McCutcheon and Michael A. Osman recently joined the Transportation Law Practice Group of Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest full-service law firms.

A member of the firm’s Detroit office, McCutcheon focuses her practice on the defense of first- and third-party auto liability cases on behalf of national insurance companies and their policyholders. These matters include potentially high-exposure litigation involving complex and catastrophic injuries. She also has experience handling subrogation matters.

A member of the State Bar of Michigan, McCutcheon is a 2010 graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and a 1998 graduate of Eastern Michigan University.

Osman is also a member of the firm’s Detroit office who focuses his practice in the areas of first- and third-party automobile negligence. He represents employers and insurance policyholders in civil litigation involving Michigan’s No-Fault Law. These claims involve personal injury protection, uninsured/underinsured motorist disputes and bodily injury.

In addition, Osman has prior experience working with and defending the Michigan Automobile Insurance Placement Facility (MAIPF), an organization designed to provide auto insurance to eligible individuals who were uninsured at the time of a motor vehicle accident. He assisted the MAIPF with determining the eligibility of uninsured applicants and ultimate entitlement to personal injury protection insurance benefits.

Osman is a member of the State Bar of Michigan. He received his law degree from Wayne State University Law School in 2014 and his undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from Wayne State University in 2011.

Plunkett Cooney’s Transportation Law Practice Group includes the talents of more than 20 attorneys who provide an array of litigation and risk management services, including expertise in the areas of trucking liability, first- and third-party auto liability, cross-border claims with Canada, fraud investigation services and emergency accident response.
