Senior Attorney and Partner of Michigan Cerebral Palsy Attorneys

euel-kinsey-michigan-cerebral-palsy-attorneysIn 2016, veteran litigator Euel Kinsey joined Michigan Cerebral Palsy Attorneys as a partner and Senior Attorney. Euel has handled a variety of cases in Michigan, Tennessee, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court, and the 5th and 6th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals, as well as in numerous other states. While Euel’s early work involved a diverse collection of case types, his primary legal focus on birth trauma brought him to Michigan Cerebral Palsy Attorneys.

Euel’s dedication to medical malpractice hinges on his passion for securing the futures of babies and children impacted by birth injuries due to medical negligence. His success as a litigator has secured numerous verdicts and settlements far greater than $1 million, including his largest settlement in the state of Wisconsin, where he secured a net verdict of $21 million which is expected to pay out nearly $80 million over the course of the child’s life.

His passion for assisting others in need of medical care extends beyond the courtroom – Kinsey is a licensed pilot and long-time member of Lifeline Pilots, a group of volunteer pilots in remote locations that help financially-distressed people in need of specialized medical care get to healthcare facilities that may otherwise be out of their reach. Euel also lectures first responders and coaches soccer and softball. Between 2011 and 2012, Euel served as a Trustee on Michigan’s Chippewa Valley School Board, serving on the Curriculum and Finance Subcommittees.

Kinsey is also a member of the Forum Shoppers and Coda Honor barbershop quartets, performing satirical pieces about lawyers and judges, conventional barbershop arrangements and gospel pieces, as well as participating in competitions and at public and private events.
