Attorney Aaron Burrell Profiled in Legal News

September 23, 2015
Dickinson Wright Attorney Aaron Burrell is the youngest attorney, in recent memory, to be elected to lead the D. Augustus Straker Bar Association, according to Legal News, who profiled him for the article “New Straker president focuses on next ‘chapter’ of bar” (9/23/15).

In the profile, Mr. Burrell, who began his term in July, discussed his experiences and how they have shaped him as a lawyer. He told Legal News that he draws on his experiences as a minority law student in his legal practice. In addition to his work for minority business enterprises, he is Co-Chair of the State Bar of Michigan’s Equal Access Initiative and sits on Dickinson Wright’s recruitment committee.

“We have more to do to bring people of color into the legal community, but I think law schools in this area are making a concerted effort to add diversity to their ranks,” Burrell said. “And Dickinson Wright remains committed to increasing diversity among its ranks.”
