Michael D. Hills Criminal Defense Attorney
The above photograph was taken in the middle of a murder trial. I was discussing with my father whether to move for a mistrial because of destruction of evidence and lack of discovery in the middle of the trial.
In this photo Mr.Hills was pointing to an opinion Justice Kelly had written that Mr. Hills had been involved with from his days as a law clerk for Judge Harry A. Beach. Joining the conversation was Congressman Alexander Lipsey (current 9th circuit judge Kalamazoo).
This Stain Glass Window was created for Mr. Hills by Judge Benson.
