The Virtual Michigan Appellate Assigned Counsel System Orientation with Joel Kershaw

Joel Kershaw is a founding partner of Kershaw, Vititoe & Jedinak, PLC, which was founded in 2015 with Matt Vititoe and Steven Jedinak. Before co-founding his current firm, Joel worked as a solo practitioner, primarily serving clients in the areas of criminal defense, family law, social security, and estate planning. Joel joined the MAACS roster in 2013, and he has been increasingly focused on felony appeals both in both appointed and retained cases, which is now the overwhelming majority of his practice. Over the past several years, Joel has also become increasingly involved in prison ministry, outreach, and advocacy. He has served as volunteer with prison fellowship, where he co-facilitated a job skills class at the Chelsea SAI facility and an intensive academy at Parnall Correctional Facility. He currently attends Moody Theological Seminary in Plymouth, Michigan, where he is working on a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology. He hopes to use his counseling degree to help incarcerated persons and formerly incarcerated persons address incarceration related trauma.
