Attorney Edward Pappas, of Dickinson Wright PLLC, was honored with the Integrity Award during WMU-Cooley Law School’s Integrity in Our Communities Speaker Series on March 10. The award is presented to legal professionals who demonstrate the highest integrity in their profession.

Pappas, chairman at Dickinson Wright’s Troy, Michigan office, specializes in commercial and business litigation, arbitration, and mediation. He is a member of WMU-Cooley’s board of directors and serves on the State Bar of Michigan’s 21st Century Task Force. In 2015, he received the Robert P. Hudson Award, the State Bar of Michigan’s highest honor. Pappas is past president and former member of the board of commissioners of the State Bar of Michigan.

Pappas spoke to WMU-Cooley law students, faculty, and staff about the importance of preserving their reputations, both professionally and personally, and praised WMU-Cooley Law School for instilling ethics throughout its curriculum.

“A good reputation can take you 45 years to build, like was the case with me, and only seconds to destroy,” said Pappas. “Trust your instincts and be courageous when building success.”

The Integrity in Our Communities speaker series brings nationally and locally recognized speakers to WMU-Cooley Law School to talk about issues, trials, and lawsuits on ethical and professional matters.
