Detroit—May 4, 2020—Detroit-based land use, business, and denominational trust law firm Dalton & Tomich is pleased to announce that Adel Nucho has joined the firm as an attorney. Nucho has been a law clerk at the firm since 2018. He graduated cum laude from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in December 2019 and successfully completed the bar exam in February 2020. The announcement was made by firm co-founder Daniel Dalton, who offered welcome remarks at Nucho’s virtual swearing in ceremony today before the Honorable David A. Groner, Wayne Circuit Court.
“Today represents the culmination of many years of hard work, dedication and perseverance and…is the true beginning of Adel’s legal education,” Dalton said. “He has completed his formal legal education… but the process of being an attorney is just that – a process that requires constant effort to stay up to date on the law. For the people of the state of Michigan, this Court and the rest of the judiciary, and all the members of the bar, Adel’s admission today represents a new opportunity as we will be looking to him to carry forward the best traditions of the legal profession.”
At Dalton & Tomich, Nucho will focus his practice on religious property – both land use and zoning – including discrimination cases relating to the Religious Land Use & Institutional Persons Act (RLUIPA), and working with local churches who wish to leave their denomination and retain their property.
During his second year at Detroit Mercy Law, he was a teaching assistant for the civil procedures class. He was a summer 2017 judicial intern for the Hon. Robert Cleland, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in Port Huron. In addition to his law degree, Nucho holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management from Oakland University. He is a resident of Shelby Township, Michigan.
