Paul D. Hudson

Paul chairs the firm's Appeals group and focuses his practice almost exclusively on appellate matters in the state and federal appeals courts.

He has argued more than 40 appeals in appellate courts across the country, including in the Michigan Supreme Court, the Michigan Court of Appeals, and the United States Courts of Appeal for the Sixth and Seventh Circuits. He serves as a lead appellate counsel for a large automotive OEM in appeals throughout the Midwest, and lead appellate counsel for a large insurer in the Michigan appeals courts. He also represents individual clients in cases ranging from property and probate disputes to federal criminal and habeas appeals. He is admitted to practice in the United States Supreme Court, and has represented clients at the writ of certiorari stage. Paul also maintains an active amicus curiae practice, and serves as amicus counsel for the Michigan Manufacturers Association, a leading trade organization and a prominent voice in the Michigan appellate courts.

Paul uses this deep and varied appellate experience to defend our clients' hard-fought victories on appeal and to overturn unfavorable decisions from the lower courts.

Active in the state and federal bar associations, Paul was appointed by the Chief Judge of the Sixth Circuit to serve as the chair of the Advisory Committee on Rules, one of just three Michigan lawyers on the Committee. He also serves on the State Bar of Michigan's Appellate Practice Council, and has held leadership positions on the American Bar Association's Appellate Practice Committee. Paul was the Editor-in-Chief and Publications Chair of the State Bar of Michigan Litigation Journal, and co-authored the Michigan chapter of a leading treatise on commercial disputes, "Business Torts: A Fifty State Guide."

In addition to his busy practice, Paul serves the community as a member of the Board of Directors for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Michigan.
