Getting to know the new judge


The newest judge in Macomb County — 39th District Court Judge Alyia Hakim — was the guest of honor on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at an event sponsored by the Macomb County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section. Hakim (fifth from left) was appointed to the bench by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to fill a partial term after the late Judge Catherine Steenland stepped down last July. Pictured with Hakim at the Meet the New Judge event at La Saj Lebanese Bisto in Sterling Heights were (left to right) Grace Crivello, YLS director; Macomb County 41B District Court Judge Jacob Femminineo Jr; Macomb County 41A District Court Judge Annemarie Lepore; Sherman Abdo, YLS chair; Jon Biernat, MCBA president; Laura Polizzi, YLS vice chair; Chris Metry, YLS director; Alicia Golm, YLS secretary; and Aaron Hall, YLS treasurer.
