Detroit Employment Law Firm

In some situations, the big concepts are paramount: justice, constitutional rights and freedom. In business and transactional type cases, the details are equally important, as every contract provision must be perfect. By offering employment law representation, whistleblower representation and transactional services from the same firm, we never lose sight of any big idea or small detail in any of the many types of cases we handle.

In the Detroit area or elsewhere in Michigan, call us at 248-918-4542. In a free consultation, we can discuss your matter over the phone or in our offices in Dearborn or Troy.

We never lose sight of what matters to you.

Two Different Lawyers To Form A Firm

We started this firm to serve the same community from two distinct angles. We provide our clients experiencing federal and state employment law violations with aggressive, just representation, and we provide our business clients with sophisticated counsel in the context of a long-term business relationship they can trust.

Meet The Attorneys At Akeel & Valentine, PLC

  • Shereef Akeel

"After starting my career as a Certified Public Accountant, with an MBA, I needed a change in making a stronger impact in people's lives, so I went to law school. I graduated cum laude from Michigan State University.Now after 18 years of practicing law, whether it is an employment or whistleblower case, I relish the role of fighting for my client's rights to vindicate them, and expose the wrong." — Shereef Akeel

  • Glenn Valentine

"I've been practicing transactional law for more than 30 years and enjoy the detail and problem-solving aspects of my work. I thought it would be great to partner with Shereef, the son-in-law of a business partner of mine, to offer the community business, as well as, civil rights representation." — Glenn Valentine
