Engman - Poles w captionTroy, Michigan-based law firm Fabrizio & Brook has announced the hiring of a new attorney, Paul Poles, and the appointment of Managing Shareholder Jonathan Engman to sit as a case evaluator in Oakland County, Michigan.

Engman, who was recognized as a top attorney in Michigan in the 2014 Crain's Super Lawyers Magazine, was appointed to a five-year term as a case evaluator.

He earned a bachelor's degree (magna cum laude) in business administration from Wayne State University in Detroit and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and is admitted to practice in the U.S. Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan as well as the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Poles is a member of several legal associations, including the Litigation Law Section and the Real Property Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan, the Michigan Mortgage Lenders Association, the Oakland County Bar Association, the Michigan Creditors Bar Association, and the Chaldean American Bar Association. His articles have been published in the Legal League Quarterly and The Brief, and he was a speaker at the 2013 Legal League Spring Summit.
