    Christopher E. Ware, Michigan 1995, and Laura Gramling Perez, Michigan 1996, are the 2007 recipients of the Hon. Charles Dunn Author Award, presented annually by the State Bar Communications Committee.

    They are being honored for their article "Main Street Meets Wall Street: The Mortgage Meltdown" (Dec. 2007). In selecting their article, the Dunn award subcommittee said: "This is a very easy to understand and comprehensive article covering a complicated and important issue from all sides. It is an excellent summary of a very large and potentially complex problem facing many homeowners. It is well researched and the authors' expertise is very apparent."
