Not OP here, but I work at a large Detroit firm, and I have to say the answer to that question will vary, likely depending on where the person answering works. This market isn't like NYC, with lots of third party rankings out there. I'm not aware of rankings lists that are meaningful beyond mere size. Someone could make a list, and likely all the firm rankings could be debated. I'm better able to say who is lower on the prestige scale than higher, but I wouldn't venture a ranking of "order of prestige." In other words, I can think of a list of what I would consider "peer firms," and then everyone else.
I can tell you Honigman would tell you they are the most pretigious - but OF COURSE they would
(if you know this market, you know exactly what I mean).
This list here is a good reference, but this isn't a "prestige" list. For example, Trott & Trott is a large-ish firm, but they are largely high-volume title work and not exactly prestigious. Plunket Cooney does lots of high-volume insurance work and pays first year associates significantly less [edit: than market for a firm their size], but it's a bigish firm. Kitch is large-ish but pays associates dirt. So here. http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article/20130825/LIST/130829931/largest-law-firms#
