I worked for an Oakland County Circuit Court judge for three years while in law school. I know this courthouse, and its judges better than any other court in the area. There are ninteen judges and some are tough, some are lenient and many in between. They all seemingly like to go to trial. This place is very busy and many attorneys are intimidated by its culture. Thankfully, having learned how to litigate and practice law here, intimidated I am not.
