Miller Canfield’s Saul Green Recognized by Hannan Foundation for Lifetime Achievement

August 27, 2018

DETROIT (Sept. 7, 2018) – Miller Canfield litigation attorney Saul Green has been recognized for lifetime achievement by the Luella Hannan Memorial Foundation in its 70 Over Seventy Awards.

Green is a lifetime Detroiter. He has served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, as chief counsel for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and as Wayne County Corporation Counsel. He was appointed by Pres. Bill Clinton to serve as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, where he counted among his accomplishments the relationship building he did between the Department of Justice and the police, and the work he did in raising law enforcement professionals' awareness and sensitivity to racial profiling. He served as Detroit's deputy mayor under Kenneth Cockrel, Jr. and during the early part of Dave Bing's term as mayor.

He is a successful litigator who in recent years has worked with police departments to assist them in complying with settlements following police misconduct claims.

"The firm is tremendously proud of Saul, his lifetime of service to the community and excellence in the profession of law," said Miller Canfield CEO Michael McGee. "He has spent his career making our community a better place, and we have all benefitted from his work as well as his friendship."

Green volunteers with organizations including Detroit Youth Violence Prevention Initiative and Ceasefire Detroit.

The 70 Over Seventy awards represent the human potential that continues and in some cases increases with age, according to the Foundation. Green earned recognition in the Lifetime Achievement category. Other categories are: Civic/Community Leadership, Art, Entrepreneurship, Unsung Hero, Lifelong Learning, and Changemaker.

The Luella Hannan Memorial Foundation was founded in 1925 to serve aged people in Detroit. For a full list of 70 Over Seventy honorees, visit 70overseventy.com. Green and other honorees will be recognized at a special award ceremony on Oct. 6, 2018.
