Dickinson Wright Attorney Joseph W. DeLave is the Notre Dame Club of Detroit's Award of the Year Recipient

Dickinson Wright Member Joseph W. DeLave has been named the recipient of the Notre Dame Club of Detroit's Award of the Year. The award is given annually by local Notre Dame alumni clubs throughout the country in recognition of the recipient's service to the University of Notre Dame and to the community at large. DeLave is the 58th honoree of the Detroit Club. The recipient is determined by a vote of the Club's prior award recipients. The award will be presented at the annual Universal Notre Dame Night dinner of the Notre Dame Club of Detroit, scheduled for June 27 at the Southfield Marriott. The concept of a universal meeting of all Notre Dame clubs was inaugurated in 1924 by the late John Neeson, a 1903 graduate of the University who was then president of the Alumni Association. The event was intended to call attention, in the spring of each year, to the non-athletic achievements of the University. Today, the function typically involves all local Notre Dame clubs and is held in cities from coast to coast. DeLave, who is based in Dickinson Wright's Bloomfield Hills office, focuses his practice on commercial and business litigation and construction law. He received both his bachelor's degree and law degree from the University of Notre Dame. DeLave is a member of several legal advisory committees for both state and regional construction groups and frequently speaks and writes on a variety of construction topics. He is a past President of the Notre Dame Club of Detroit, 1997-1998, and served on the Club's Board of Directors from 1992-2003. DeLave returned to the Board in 2006 for an additional two-year term. DeLave also serves on the Board of Directors of Lourdes Nursing Home in Waterford and is an active alumnus of DeLaSalle High School in Warren.
