Royal Oak, Mich.—August 11, 2023—Employee benefits and ERISA law firm J.J. Conway Law is pleased to announce that principal attorney and founder John Joseph (J.J.) Conway has again been selected a Michigan Super Lawyer in 2023 for exhibiting excellence in the area of employee benefits. Continuing his string of Michigan Super Lawyers honors since 2013, Conway was named in the top 5% of attorneys in Michigan who receive this distinction through Super Lawyer’s patented selection process. Conway was also named a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” in 2008–2011 and ranked in the Top 50: Michigan Consumer Super Lawyers for 2016 and 2017.

A nationally recognized trial attorney, Conway has legally navigated the complexities of disability, employee health benefits, and ERISA law for the past 24 years. Establishing his practice on the principle of helping people secure the employee benefits rightfully owed to them, Conway has recovered more than $65 million for his clients and won landmark class-action lawsuits in favor of families and retirees.

Within his employee benefits practice, Conway is known for securing healthcare benefits for children. He successfully co-litigated the first federal autism benefits healthcare action against an employee benefit plan where the court held that denying medical treatment for autism was “arbitrary and capricious,” and has acted as co-lead class action counsel on many cases—one notably for a nationwide class action of 22,000 military families seeking healthcare treatment for their children with autism.

In addition, Conway served as co-lead class action counsel for 9,000 pension plan participants against the City of Detroit’s Pension Fund, its trustees and advisors, seeking protection of the funds themselves and resulting in a multi-million-dollar settlement and major structural reforms concerning the investment of pension monies in unregulated investments. He has been involved in similar class action litigation protecting the pension rights of police, fire, and sheriff deputies from improper financial investments by their pension plan trustees.

Conway’s insights on employee benefits and ERISA law are frequently sought by national and local media outlets including Law 360, Next Avenue/PBS, ALM/Benefits Pro, WWJ News Radio 950, and the Legal News. He writes a monthly column, ‘Conway on Benefits,’ in the Detroit Legal News–providing him a forum to explore interesting topics and trends encountered through his law practice.
