Review Jody Lipton

About Me

Jody Lipton earned her bachelor’s degree in English from the
University of Michigan in 1990. She went on to receive her Juris Doctor
from the University of Detroit Law School in 1993 – graduating magna cum
laude and in the top ten in her class. She was admitted to the Michigan
Bar that same year and served as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for
Oakland County.


 


Jody became a partner at Lipton Law in 1996, where she has been no
stranger to the courtroom. She has tried more than 50 jury trials and
sits as an arbitrator. Her specialties include Michigan no-fault
insurance, automobile negligence, premises liability and other general
negligence claims. She is also an expert in motorcycle cases and
insurance.


 


As a public service to save people money and help protect their
assets, Jody shares her extensive knowledge of auto insurance via
interactive presentations to audiences of all types; she educates people
on the “real facts” about Michigan’s no-fault system.


 


In addition, Jody is also a Member of the Michigan and American Trial Lawyers
Associations, the Michigan Association for Justice, the Women Lawyers
Association of Michigan, Inforum and the State Bar of Michigan.
