Fraser Trebilcock attorney Michael S. Ashton has been named the Best Lawyers in America® 2024 Utility Law "Lawyer of the Year" in Lansing. This is a high distinction, as only one attorney in each practice area in each community is identified as "Lawyer of the Year." "I am honored to be recognized by Best Lawyer as a 2024 'Lawyer of the Year' for Utility Law in Lansing," said Mike Ashton.
Mike leads the Administrative and Regulatory Law practice at Fraser Trebilcock, and his practice primarily focuses on matters before the Michigan Public Service Commission. Mike has also represented clients in large construction projects in the cable, telecommunications and pipeline industries before the Public Service Commission, other state agencies and local governments.
Best Lawyers® is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas; because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Only five percent of attorneys in Michigan are awarded the honor.
