Butzel Long attorney Nancy Keppelman profiled in the Legal News
Among the pioneers: Employee benefits attorney began as a paralegal in Detroit

Although Nancy Keppelman enjoyed studying music in college, she knew she lacked the chops to be a professional musician.
After graduating, she spotted an ad for a paralegal school in Philadelphia and thought she’d give it a try — and landed a job working for a large Detroit law firm right after completing the course. Since she was already doing some of the work lawyers do, and was good at it, Keppelman decided to take a further step and earn her law degree from the University of Michigan.
