United States: Wilson Elser’s Michigan Office Broadens Its Service Offering With The Addition Of Jana Simmons
Last Updated: July 12 2016

Since opening its doors a year ago, Wilson Elser's (Livonia) Michigan office has grown rapidly to keep pace with the legal requirements of regional and, increasingly, national clients. We're pleased to announce the most recent addition to our attorney roster, Jana Simmons, who joins the office as of counsel.

An accomplished attorney with a reputation that far transcends her native Detroit, Jana focuses her practice on federal Indian law, tribal law, Native Hawaiian Organizations and complex civil litigation. She is licensed to practice in several tribal courts and assists tribal governments and indigenous organizations, their members and their communities with matters such as gaming and non-gaming economic development, membership disputes, constitutions, ordinances and regulations, and federal Indian law. Jana has established related case precedent and has earned a sterling reputation within and outside the "Native Nations" community. She joins several others at Wilson Elser who handle tribal cases, strengthening the firm's credentials in this especially sensitive and rapidly expanding area of law.

Regularly cited as an authority by litigants in various tribal courts, Jana's practice was featured in the Detroit Legal News and she was invited to co-author "Navigating Tribal Membership Enrollment Issues" for Thomson Reuters's Inside the Minds Series on Emerging Issues in Tribal-State Relations.

Please join us in welcoming Jana to Wilson Elser. We encourage you to reach out to her for ready and reliable legal counsel in her focus areas.
