Gina M. Torielli, Ann Arbor-based senior counsel in Dykema’s Taxation Department, was named one of 30 “Women in the Law” for 2015 by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. A luncheon celebrating the honorees will be held Sept. 10, at the Detroit Marriott Troy, where the publication will announce the 2015 “Woman of the Year.”

Earlier this year, she received the 2015 Barbara R. Smith Award from Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit in for her role as a member of the Grand Bargain Mediation Team for the City of Detroit Bankruptcy.

Beyond her practice, Torielli is very active with community organizations. She was awarded the United Way of Washtenaw County’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year award for her role serving as the organization’s volunteer site coordinator and trainer for its IRS-sanctioned Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. She is also a board member of the Solar Circle, a nonprofit organization which promotes solar power in Tanzania.
