Joel Finnell concentrates his practice on appellate matters, focusing on personal injury, auto accident, motorcycle accident, semi-truck accident, and wrongful death claims, to name a few.
Joel has works closely with some of the firm’s most senior attorneys, meticulously researching the law and drafting innovative legal arguments that best serve not only our clients, but other Michigan citizens who may one day find themselves facing similar circumstances.
