Lansing lawyer Nicki Proulx has been selected as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers magazine, a publication of Thomson Reuters.
Proulx has been recognized as a “Rising Star” in the practice field of personal injury defense. Her most recent significant victory came on a slip and fall case, where she won on summary disposition based upon an open and obvious defense, and the case was affirmed in the Court of Appeals.
As a “Rising Star” in her field, Proulx points to her mentors as the main reason why she’s had great success so soon in her career.
“I’ve learned a lot from Gary (Rogers). He’s one of the main personal injury defense lawyers at Fraser Trebilcock, and he’s been a great mentor to me,” Proulx said. “In addition to working hard, it’s important for young people in this profession to grab onto someone and learn from them, and I’ve been fortunate to have that mentorship.”
In the past year, she has also been appointed to serve on the board of directors for Downtown Lansing, Inc., the key organization for business and economic development in the city of Lansing. Proulx is also a member of the Junior League of Lansing and the Women Lawyers Association.
