Wright Beamer is pleased to announce that Lee Flaherty was recently named a Fellow of the Michigan State Bar Foundation, an honor reserved for no more than five percent of the active members of the State Bar of Michigan. Fellows are nominated and selected by the Foundation based on outstanding legal ability and demonstrated devotion to the welfare of the community, state and nation.
Founded in 1947, the Michigan State Bar Foundation has awarded more than $163 million in grants to fund law-related educational and charitable programs. The educational programs focus on putting together publications about our state’s legal history, training young people in peaceful conflict resolution, teaching individuals about their legal rights and responsibilities, and improving the administration of justice. The charitable programs focus on providing legal aid for the poor, protecting individuals from domestic violence and predatory consumer practices, distributing materials on legal topics of interest to low-income persons, and helping families stay in their homes.
Lee is proud to join her law partner, Foundation Fellow Dirk Beamer, in this important work. To learn more about the Foundation, visit www.msbf.org
