New Venture


A welcoming reception for Wendy Potts, who retired last year following a distinguished career as an Oakland County Circuit Court judge, took place November 13 to mark her “new endeavor” as a mediator with the Detroit office of JAMS (Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services). The event took place at Oakland Hills Country Club and drew a host of legal VIPs, including former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Mary Beth Kelly, who also is among the mediators with JAMS. A Detroit native and graduate of Mumford High School, Potts served as president of the Oakland County Bar Association from 1994-95, earning an appointment to the Oakland County Probate Court bench in 1997. Less than a year later, she accepted an appointment to the Circuit Court, subsequently winning election three times.
