Doug Mullkoff to receive the Gilman Award from the FBA

The Federal Bar Association Eastern District of Michigan Chapter will hold its annual Leonard R. Gilman Award Luncheon on Thursday, April 22 at 11:30 a.m. at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit.

The Gilman Award, honoring an outstanding practitioner in criminal law, will be conferred upon Douglas Mullkoff.

He has been repeatedly honored as one of the top criminal defense attorneys in white collar crime being given the highest available AV rating by the national Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.

He has appeared in federal appeal actions before the 6th Circuit over 80 times and argued cases before the Michigan Court of Appeals on more than 150 occasions.

In 2003 and 2004 in the federal district court in Washington, D.C., Mullkoff brought a habeas corpus action that resulted in the repatriation to Saudi Arabia of a Guantanamo detainee.

Mullkoff was elected president of the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan and served in that capacity from 1998 through 2000.

In 2003, the governor appointed him to the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and he served in that capacity through 2006.

The luncheon keynote speaker will be Dave Bing, Mayor of the City of Detroit.
