We are saddened to share the passing of the Honorable John E. Dewane, retired judge and close friend of many members of the Kotz Sangster team, on Thursday, October 14th. At 81 years old, John spent several years as a vital member of our firm in addition to his impactful career serving Berrien County as a Circuit Court judge.
Kotz Sangster was pleased to sponsor and participate in a recent presentation on human trafficking. Presented by Echelon Detroit, a group of young professionals within The Salvation Army, the program covered statistics, signs of trafficking, mental and emotional health implications, and recovery challenges. Anne Venet, Anti Human Trafficking Case Manager with The Salvation Army (TSA), and Jenna Fiore of the University of Michigan and TSA, shared case studies and offered suggestions on how the Metro Detroit community can help. Kotz Sangster attorneys participating in the program included John Below, Yasir Muhammad and Tyler Phillips.
