Miller Canfield Lawyer Paul Hudson Named One of Michigan Lawyers Weekly's “Up & Coming Lawyers”
The law firm of Miller Canfield announces that Paul Hudson, a principal and co-chair of the firm’s Appeals Group (Kalamazoo office), has been named one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s “Up & Coming Lawyers” for 2013. This distinct honor was awarded to only 25 Michigan young lawyers that “display the ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments to set them apart from their peers.”
In just seven years, Hudson has earned a reputation as a litigator with the ability to win tough appeals. In the last few months, he has been integral to the success of two high profile appeals in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals: MacDonald v. Thomas M. Cooley Law School, in which the 6th Circuit upheld the dismissal of a class action against the law school; and Rudisill v. Ford Motor Company, in which Hudson successfully argued an appeal involving a claim under a state intentional-tort statute arising out of a factory accident.
Before joining Miller Canfield, Hudson clerked for 6th Circuit Judge Raymond Kethledge. During law school at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., he was editor of the Georgetown Law Review and primary editor of the Annual Review of Criminal Procedure. He’s also been listed by Michigan Super Lawyers as a Rising Star since 2011.
