Nemeth Law founder joins board of directors of Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit

Detroit, Mich. —Nov. 3, 2014— Patricia Nemeth, founder of Nemeth Law, P.C., a Detroit-based labor and employment law firm, has been selected to join the board of directors of the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, an award winning national model for arts education and youth development.

Nemeth joins Mosaic after serving more than 10 years on the board of Vista Maria, the oldest and largest private, not-for-profit child welfare agency in Michigan for girls and young women. During her board tenure, including serving as board vice chair, Nemeth received Vista Maria’s Outstanding Board Leadership Award.

Nemeth became acquainted with Mosaic through her daughter, now a freshman in the BFA Guthrie theatre program at the University of Minnesota, who was a Mosaic member from 2007 to 2011.

“Serving on the Mosaic Board presents a wonderful opportunity to give back to an organization that gave my daughter so much,” Nemeth said. “The artists involved learn discipline, time management, how to be their best selves and how to work as a team. Mosaic’s motto, “Only the best, nothing less,” exemplifies what the artists expect of themselves not only on stage but off stage as well. I’m very proud to be a Mosaic Board Member.”

Nemeth founded Nemeth Law as a solo practitioner in 1992. The firm now has 12 attorneys and is the largest woman-owned law firm in Michigan to exclusively represent management in the prevention, resolution and litigation of labor and employment disputes. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctorate and LLM in Labor Law from Wayne State University School of Law.
