Three Wayne State University Law School alumnae – Teri L. Dennings, Karissa Holmes and Ronda Tate – have been recognized as “Up & Coming Lawyers 2013” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly.

“These are legal practitioners who are establishing a name for themselves, go above and beyond, and display the ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments that set them apart among their peers – in their first 10 years in practice,” according to the publication.

Dennings of Warren, class of 2005, is with Miller Cohen PLC, where she focuses her practice on employment litigation, labor and civil rights. She has represented clients in state and federal court, as well as before administration agencies. She also has lectured and published articles on employment law.

Holmes of Belleville, class of 2008, is a commercial attorney with DTE Energy Co., where she negotiates, reviews and drafts contracts and instructs contract drafting and legal concept training courses. She is involved in the community, serving as a board member of Detroit Young Professionals and an elected member of the Brush Park Citizens’ District Council.

Tate of Oak Park, class of 2006, is with Lewis & Munday PC’s Litigation Group, where she specializes in employment and education law. She is skilled in negotiating business contracts and litigating distribution disputes and has worked on several appellate matters successfully. Tate also played a key role in acquiring a recent Michigan Supreme Court victory.
