Jim Komondy commercial litigation, municipal, criminal, and domestic law

Your advisor and advocate

A 2002 graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, Jim has considerable experience in the areas of commercial litigation, municipal, criminal, and domestic law. We welcome his extensive expertise assisting municipalities with a variety of issues including ordinance drafting, contract negotiations, zoning, and Freedom of Information Act requests. He also frequently assists with prosecuting both criminal and civil municipal ordinance violations and has successfully represented the interests of his municipal clients in a wide variety of areas, ranging from evidentiary hearings to jury trials and everything in between.

In his litigation practice, Jim handles business disputes, property disputes, construction litigation, and represents commercial creditors in bankruptcy where he regularly works with small to medium-sized businesses, helping them collect on past due accounts receivable. In addition, Jim's domestic law experience includes divorce proceedings, parenting time, support, paternity, personal protection orders, and a variety of other post-judgment issues.

Finally, Jim also practices at the appellate level; in both the circuit court where he has worked successfully to uphold the ordinances of local municipalities against constitutional and evidentiary challenges, and in the Court of Appeals, where he has successfully defended clients in matters ranging from easement disputes and riparian rights, to defamation and invasion of privacy, to the enforcement of buy-sell agreements.

Jim enjoys being both an advisor and advocate for his clients and offers an aggressive, yet practical approach, allowing him to present the strongest possible case. His deliberate organizational skills reflect in his timeliness in responding to clients' needs, as well as his preparedness in court.
