Tali Wendrow is a litigator in the firm’s Insurance Defense group, handling the defense of automobile negligence and general liability claims.

A skilled researcher and writer, Tali draws from her extensive judicial clerkship experience to represent her clients. To her, a successful outcome comes from fleshing out the facts, determining the real issues, making necessary legal distinctions, and pursuing the most just solution. For fourteen years, Tali served as a staff attorney to three different Oakland County Circuit Court judges, learning firsthand that you don’t win your case by talking more or drafting longer briefs, but by understanding and effectively presenting your position, often by means of persuasively written pleadings, motions, and briefs. She has applied the lessons she learned in chambers and from her view of the bench to private practice.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Communications from the University of Michigan, Tali earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit Law School, where she served as Articles and Book Review Editor for the law review.

Outside the practice, Tali is committed to protecting and advancing the rights of children and adults with disabilities, and is active with The Arc of Oakland County and the Council of Parent Attorneys & Advocates. She also volunteers with The Friendship Circle and the Oakland County Lawyers Committee for the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, having previously served on the Board of the ACLU’s former Oakland County Branch.
