Maddin Hauser is pleased to announce that David M. Saperstein has been appointed to the State Bar of Michigan’s Professional Ethics Committee.
The Professional Ethics Committee’s jurisdiction is to offer analysis and guidance concerning the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct and, to the extent that they relate to attorney conduct in Michigan, provisions of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct, and other applicable professional conduct standards, as well as emerging issues of professional conduct affecting lawyers.
The announcement was made by the firm’s President and CEO, Steven D. Sallen. “We’re pleased that David will be serving on the State Bar of Michigan’s Professional Ethics Committee. With his unique perspective and experience in the area of professional liability defense, David will surely be an asset to the committee and its initiatives,” said Sallen.
A shareholder of the firm, Saperstein concentrates his practice in the areas of professional liability defense and appellate law, primarily defending attorneys, registered representatives and broker-dealers, insurance agents, accountants, and real estate agents.
Among his numerous published law articles, Saperstein’s “Let’s Talk Civility,” published in Michigan Lawyers Weekly, reviews civility requirements for attorneys and the consequences of inappropriate behavior.
Saperstein has served as an officer of B’nai Israel Synagogue of West Bloomfield, Chair of the Oakland County Bar Association’s Race Judicata Committee, and other community organizations. He has been named a Top Lawyer by DBusiness Magazine and Runner of the Week by the Detroit Free Press. Saperstein’s story about trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon, “Ever Feel Like the Butter’s Sliding Off Your Biscuit?” was published and illustrated in the London-based magazine Like the Wind.
