MAJ Pacesetter: Pratheep Sevanthinathan

We are honored to announce that the Michigan Association of Justice chose to feature Pratheep as its current “Pacesetter.”

Here is an excerpt from the MAJ’s article on Pratheep:

“Troy attorney Pratheep Sevanthinathan didn’t always want to be an attorney. “Growing up in the South Asian/Indian community in Michigan, it just wasn’t an option. In my community there is a lot of pressure to become a doctor or engineer. In the ‘80s there were no Indian lawyers that I knew of, and so I never even thought about being a lawyer. I got a degree in chemical engineering without really knowing I had much of a choice. I knew that I really didn’t want to be a chemical engineer and be isolated in a lab all day, but I went through with the degree anyway. Luckily, in college, I became more socially and politically aware, and was exposed to the idea of being able to make a bigger impact as a lawyer. Thus, I began investigating the legal field, and realized that lawyers do so much more than what is shown on TV. I ended up clerking with an MAJ member right after undergrad. I loved working for the law firm and then decided that I wanted to be a laywer.”
