Jody Lipton earned her bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Michigan in 1990. She went on to receive her Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit Law School in 1993 – graduating magna cum laude and in the top ten in her class. She was admitted to the Michigan Bar that same year and served as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Oakland County.

Jody became a partner at Lipton Law in 1996, where she has been no stranger to the courtroom. She has tried more than 50 jury trials and sits as an arbitrator. Her specialties include Michigan no-fault insurance, automobile negligence, premises liability and other general negligence claims. She is also an expert in motorcycle cases and insurance.

Throughout her tenure at Lipton Law, Jody has received numerous accolades, including:

  • Named “Top Lawyer” by DBusiness magazine
  • Recognized numerous times as a “Michigan Super Lawyer”
  • Achieved an AV Rating by Martindale-Hubbell

She is also a member of the American Association for Justice, the Michigan Association for Justice, the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan, Inforum and the State Bar of Michigan.

As a public service to save people money and help protect their assets, Jody shares her extensive knowledge of auto insurance via interactive presentations to audiences of all types; she educates people on the "real facts" about Michigan’s no-fault system.

Jody considers herself as "a loyal advocate with a huge heart." Those close to her, however, will tell you she’s "a steel fist with a velvet glove." With Jody on your side, you know that you are getting 110 percent of her experience and passion for doing what is right. When she is not in the courtroom or giving presentations on auto insurance, she loves spending quality time with her husband and children. She also loves traveling, meeting new people, playing tennis and working out.
