Attorneys

Goodman & Hurwitz’s named partners have specialized in civil rights, constitutional law, and police misconduct for decades; Bill Goodman since 1965 and Julie Hurwitz since 1982. Senior associate attorney Kathryn Bruner James has also practiced almost exclusively in these areas since 2007.

The firm has successfully handled a number of cases of political and legal importance in the Detroit area, such as representing the Detroit City Council in its historic struggle to remove the Mayor of Detroit in 2008, representing Walter Swift for his wrongful conviction by Detroit Police that caused him to spend 25 years in prison, and representing the family of Robert Mitchell who was killed in April 2009 by a Warren Police Officer’s TASER.
