Southfield, Mich. --- August 19, 2021 --- David M. Moss and A. Vince Colella, personal injury attorneys and founding partners of Southfield-based Moss & Colella, P.C., have been named to the 2021 Michigan Super Lawyers list, while associate attorney Victor Balta has been awarded the Super Lawyers Rising Star designation. All three attorneys devote 100% of their practice to litigation.

Moss, who has been on the Michigan Super Lawyers list for 14 years, was named in the category of personal injury general: plaintiff.  He represents victims and their families in a variety of injury cases against insurance companies, national corporations, hospitals, municipalities, and individual defendants.  He has a special focus in motorcycle accidents and automobile “No-Fault” litigation and has litigated hundreds of cases on behalf of injured accident victims across the State of Michigan.  Known for his trial and oral advocacy skills, Moss has argued before the Michigan Supreme Court and several Michigan Court of Appeals panels.

Also named in the category of personal injury general: plaintiff, Colella’s appearance marks the 11th consecutive year that he has been selected as a Michigan Super Lawyer. His trial experience includes automobile negligence, police brutality and misconduct, premises liability, trucking accidents, insurance disputes, sexual harassment, sexual assault, discrimination, and wrongful death. In recent years, Colella has gained a reputation as a noted trailblazer for his litigation efforts in government liability, recreational accidents and civil rights cases. Colella is respected by lawyers and judges as an aggressive, skillful and powerful trial lawyer, and known as a compassionate and relentless advocate by his clients.

In his inaugural debut as a Super Lawyer Rising Star, Victor Balta was recognized in the category of civil litigation: plaintiff. He has helped guide clients through complex legal matters, including gross negligence, statutory immunity, employment discrimination, and police misconduct claims, and has successfully briefed and argued cases involving recreational waivers, the Michigan Governmental Tort Liability Act, the Michigan Ski Area Safety Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act, and 42 U.S.C § 1983. The Rising Star designation for Balta comes on the heels of his recent recognition by the National Trial Lawyers as one of “40 under 40” in the category of civil litigation: plaintiff.
