The Macomb County Bar Association, as part of its Continuing Legal Education seminar series, recently hosted an event that focused on sobriety and drug courts in the county. The event was co-sponsored by the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan-Macomb Region. Among the featured speakers was Thomas Jekielek (second from right), coordinator of the 37th District Court Drug Court. He is pictured with (from left) Jennifer Chupa, drug court defendant attorney; Tanya Grillo with the WLAM; and Michelene Eberhard, chair of the MCBA criminal law committee. Grillo said the seminar was held to give attorneys a better understanding of the various drug and sobriety courts in the county so that they can better equip their clients for entry and success in the programs.
