LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Dan Hass, of Menominee, to the Menominee County Probate Court.

“Dan has demonstrated both his acute legal aptitude and his unwavering commitment to serving the people of the city and county of Menominee for over three decades,” Snyder said. “I am confident that the residents of Menominee County will continue to be served with the utmost integrity by Mr. Hass as he assumes his new role as probate court judge.”

Hass has been the Menominee County prosecuting attorney since he was first elected in January of 1988. He began his legal career as an assistant in the prosecutor’s office before becoming the city attorney for Menominee. Hass is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, Menominee County Bar Association, Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan, and the National District Attorneys Association. 

Hass earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Ferris State College and a law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge William Hupy.

Hass will stand for election in 2016 to serve the remainder of Judge Hupy’s term, and then in November 2018 for reelection to serve a full six-year term.
