Attorney Lisa Dwyer, co-founder of The Steingold & Dwyer Law Group, is celebrating twenty years practicing in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. “I feel I have done a really great job for my clients this past twenty years,” said Dwyer, who focuses on criminal defense and entertainment law. “It’s nice to reflect on and to think of my client successes. I look forward to serving my clients well into the future.”
Dwyer began her career as a public defender in Wayne County, MI, and later opened her own practice in Detroit.
