Southfield, Mich.—December 4, 2023—David M. Moss, a founding partner of personal injury and civil rights law firm Moss & Colella, P.C., has been named to the inaugural Michigan’s Go To Lawyers Power List by the legal trade publication, Michigan Lawyers Weekly. Chosen by a committee from four Go To Lawyer practice areas, Moss was included in the category of negligence law. In October, Moss was recognized as part of the publication’s larger list of Go To Lawyers in Negligence Law; only seven of the 24 honored made it on the new ‘Power List.’

According to Michigan Lawyers Weekly, a Go To Lawyer is:

  • A lawyer who is an expert in their field, well-versed in the nuances of the case law, statutes and regulations clients will encounter.
  • A lawyer who is experienced and enjoys a record of success, with many cases that give testimony to the quality advice the lawyer can provide.
  • A lawyer to whom other lawyers make referrals because of their experience and accomplishments.
  • A lawyer who can think creatively and identify all options for a client.
  • A lawyer you would name when a friend from another state calls because they have a client who needs legal help in Michigan.

With 100% of his practice devoted to litigation, Moss has spent his nearly 40-year legal career in personal injury law representing victims and their families in a variety of injury cases against insurance companies, national corporations, hospitals, municipalities, and individual defendants.  Known for his courtroom and advocacy skills, he has successfully argued at the appellate level, both before the Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court.  He is also highly respected as a skilled negotiator. Because of his many legal accomplishments and varied courtroom experience, Moss is sought after by both plaintiff and defense attorneys seeking to retain outside counsel to advocate their cases.

The Go To Lawyer honors are two of many accolades Moss has recently received. He was named to The Best Lawyers in America® list in August 2023–his second appearance on the list–in the practice area of Personal Injury Litigation–Plaintiffs, and has been recognized as a Michigan Super Lawyer and DBusiness Top Lawyer for multiple years. He was also named to the Michigan Lawyers Weekly Hall of Fame Class of 2023 earlier this year.

In November 2023, Moss & Colella, P.C. made its inaugural debut with a Tier 1 ranking at the metropolitan level in the Personal Injury Litigation–Plaintiffs category by Best Lawyers® in the 14th edition of the United States Best Law Firms®.

The complete Power List will be profiled in a special section in the December 18 print and digital issues of Michigan Lawyers Weekly.
