A2: Attorney

Crain’s Detroit Business includes Ann Arbor attorney Richard Soble among its 2010 Best Lawyers listing, citing his work in obtaining a $100 million settlement from the state in a 13-year class-action lawsuit on behalf of female inmates at the Robert Scott Correctional Facility. Says Soble, who now serves as an out-of-court mediator: “Trial work is exquisite, but there is certainly a great deal of anxiety and exhaustion in preparing and litigating it. I like the problem-solving part of mediation work, and there is a satisfaction in taking a problem and getting it to resolution within the same day.” [Source]
