Monday, November 4, 2013


BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – Edward D. Gold, attorney and senior shareholder, Butzel Long, has been named to the Leading Michigan Lawyers list in the areas of Family Law, and Family Law ADR. The news appears in the November/December issue of DBusiness magazine.

A lawyer cannot “buy” the distinction of being a Leading Lawyer. This distinction is earned by being among those lawyers who are most often recommended by their peers in statewide surveys. Respondents cannot recommend themselves or lawyers at their law firm.

Gold, practices matrimonial law full-time in the firm’s Bloomfield Hills office. For more than 15 years, he served as the practice group leader for the firm's Family Law practice.

Gold previously served as a National Vice President of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and as President of the Michigan chapter. He is an elected member of the Matrimonial Network, a group of the 30 finest matrimonial lawyers in the country. He also has served as President of the Southfield Bar Association and the Oakland County Bar Association.
He is listed in the current edition of the Best Lawyers in America and has been continuously listed for the past 20 years. He was named one of the 10 best divorce lawyers in metropolitan Detroit by Detroit Monthly magazine and is recognized as one of Michigan's Super Lawyers.
Gold attended Wayne State University and Detroit College of Law (J.D.). He has authored numerous articles on family law and is a contributing lecturer for the Institute of Continuing Legal Education, the State Bar Family Law Section Seminar Series, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and the Michigan Trial Lawyers.
