The Community Outreach Committee understands that the practice of law is time intensive. The Committee asks that the World’s Best Attorneys agree to be Wolverine Bar Ambassadors as well. If you want to participate in a one-time project, make a biweekly/monthly commitment, or donate to an organization listed below, you are making an impact in our community. Special thanks to Community Outreach Chairwomen, Erin Hendrix (U.S. Attorneys Office, ED Mich) and Macie Tuiasosopo (Adam Shakoor & Associates), for generating this curated list of opportunities to get involved. Details are below, e-mail wbacommunityservice@gmail.com with the Project that you want to support!

To join the Community Outreach Committee, email Erin Hendrix at wbacommunityservice@gmail.com or call the WBA at (313) 962-0250.
