Julie Fershtman, an attorney and shareholder with Foster Swift Collins & Smith, was presented with the highest honor from the State Bar of Michigan at the State Bar’s NEXT Conference and Annual Meeting at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.

 The Roberts P. Hudson Award commends “one or more lawyers for their unselfish rendering of outstanding and unique service to and on behalf of the State Bar of Michigan, the legal profession and public.” Debuting in 1979, the Roberts P. Hudson Award is not handed out annually, but instead is only awarded periodically based on merit. Fershtman is co-recipient of the award with Bruce Courtade, her co-chair of the Michigan State Bar’s 21st Century Practice Task Force in 2015-2016.

“My father was a lawyer. My husband is a lawyer. It was a commitment I was born into as the daughter of a lawyer who really took his job very seriously,” Fershtman said. “You don’t become a lawyer without a significant and sincere commitment to the public and the people you serve. When you become a lawyer, your commitment is serving your clients and protecting them.”
