Local Counsel with Jody B. Lipton

The Southfield attorney tells us what’s good in the neighborhood

Published in 2017 Michigan Super Lawyers magazine

Best place to take a client    To the bank (just kidding).

Favorite watering hole    Tango’s at the Westin (right around the corner from Lipton Law). 

Local beverage of choice    Valentine Vodka tastes the best, and is headquartered in Ferndale.

Best restaurant    Local Kitchen and Bar in Ferndale, but I may be biased, as I am part owner. We have the best patio in town, great food and a fun event space. 

Favorite city event    Huntington Woods’ Fourth of July celebration. Naturally, this is my favorite because it’s where I live and have raised my family. 

Where to go after a win    Bacco Ristorante speaks for itself: great food, amazing wine list, superb service, never a disappointment and a great place to celebrate.

Besides the people, favorite thing about your office    The fact that I bring my dog to the office when I want.

Best Way to reflect    Driving my convertible on a sunny day.

Go-to sports venue    Target Sports on Woodward. Who doesn’t love to go shooting on a Sunday morning? I hang out with a great group of men, who are some of the best shooters in the state.

Favorite movie theater    The Maple Theater. There’s always a great movie, and nothing is better than a glass of wine with a movie.

Best place for people watching    Eastern Market.

Favorite local shop    Saffron in Royal Oak. The owner is adorable, and her boho-chic style is too cute for words. 

Favorite coffee shop    Starbucks on Woodward, north of 13 Mile. Go on Sunday mornings after Target Sports.

Favorite pizza joint    Amici’s in Berkley. The best recipes, the best pizza and women-owned! My favorite pizza is the black bean.

Go-to arts venue    DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts).

Best view    DAC rooftop.

Favorite historical site in Detroit    The Guardian Building.

Favorite park    Campus Martius.

Place to take out-of-town guests    Detroit Golf Club.

Favorite sports bar    Mr. Joe’s.
