Michigan Lawyers Weekly Selects Corinne Rockoff for “Up & Coming” 2024 Class


Maddin Hauser is thrilled to announce that Michigan Lawyers Weekly selected shareholder Corinne S. Rockoff for its 2024 class of “Up & Coming” attorneys.

The Up & Coming program recognizes Michigan’s emerging legal leaders who have excelled in the profession and are standouts among their peers. They must be in the first ten years of practice to be considered. 

What Makes Corinne an Up & Coming Attorney?

A shareholder and member of Maddin Hauser’s Financial Services and Real Property Litigation Group, Corinne is a rare breed of lawyer whose affinity and talent for litigation is matched by an equal attraction to the challenges, nuances, and rewards of complex transactional work. Whereas many lawyers see those two practices as mutually exclusive, Corinne’s different perspective has served her and her clients well. 

Corinne understands the best disputes are the ones that never happen. In the construction, mortgage, and real property work that forms the bulk of her practice, meticulous, well-crafted documents are the key to preventing or minimizing costly and disruptive conflicts. Conversely, when a dispute reaches the courthouse steps, having a comprehensive grasp of those foundational documents gives Corinne a distinct advantage. This blended practice allows Corinne to incorporate what she sees in court for her clients’ benefit in subsequent transactions, increasing the odds of a litigation-free future.

Matching impressive advocacy skills with savvy negotiating and complementing her positive demeanor with steely determination, Corinne has delivered positive results for clients across many industries in litigation and transactional contexts.

A Leader Within the Firm and Her Community

Corinne is a valuable resource and vocal advocate for newer attorneys at Maddin Hauser. Not far removed from those uncertain and stressful early days of practicing law, she strives to act as a generational bridge between new lawyers and partners.

Additionally, Corinne has played instrumental roles in developing firm policies that consider and incorporate the needs and priorities of women, parents, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. In her practice, which involves high-dollar deals and high-stakes litigation, Corinne takes pride in opportunities to represent women, clients who speak English as a second language, and others who have been marginalized, stereotyped, or condescended to, giving them a respectful ear and a powerful voice.

Corinne is deeply devoted to the Ferndale community, where she lives with her wife, son, dog, and cat. Outside the firm, she is co-chair of the Board of Directors for the Ruth Ellis Center in Highland Park. She contributes her time, energy, and legal talents to making services available to LGBTQ+ young people who face multidimensional difficulties.
