Three Attorneys from Goodman Acker P.C. Named Leading Lawyers


Personal Injury Results






Goodman Acker P.C. is pleased to announce that three of our lawyers have been named to the list of Leading Lawyers. Attorneys Gerald H. Acker, Barry J. Goodman, and Tim Sulolli were all listed this year. Less than 5% of all lawyers licensed in the state of Michigan receive the distinction of Leading Lawyer.

The list of Leading Lawyers is very different from other attorney search sites or lawyer finder directories because law firms can’t buy their way onto the list. Thousands of lawyers in each state are contacted and mailed surveys asking them which of their peers they believe comprise the top lawyers within their respective region and/or area(s) of law. Only the lawyers who are most often recommended, and later approved by the Advisory Board, are selected as Leading Lawyers.
