The best defense attorney!! Period!!!
When my home was raided and tore upside down, family taken to jail, to be let our 3 days later to find all of our vehicles were seized, TV's taken, bank accounts seized, wallet taken, computers, cellphones, my covered trailer, guns, all of our files (including marriage license, birth certificates, all tax records and receipts, 5 vehicle titles) my entire garden of LEGALLY GROWN medical marijuana. I made some calls and I had 3 different people, including a local attorney, that recommended that I call Michael Komorn. I am so happy that I did. Michael isn't like every other attorney that I've had in the past. They are trained to make a plea deal. And, that is what they try to convince you of. Michael is of the belief that 2nd place is the first loser!!!!!! He fights to win. He isn't even afraid to yell at the judge if the judge doesn't know the laws him/herself. My case took over 6 yrs because every time we were set for trial the Attorney General of Michigan would assign a new Asst. AG to prosecute the case. Michael refused to let an innocent man be taken advantage to a broken legal system. We finally won our case. It never would have happened if I hadn't had Michael Komorn. He will be my attorney for any unlikely future problems.

I almost plead until I talked to Mike
I was standing on the edge facing years of prison. I had an attorney who just tried to get me to move on and plea. A plea would have ruined my life, my future, my family and any chance of appeal. I decided to make a call and talk to another attorney just for the heck of it. Thank god I called Michael after looking around the internet. After talking to him he explained what he was going to do and how the outcome would potentially be. He said "If you hire me I will fight and it's going to cost you a little more but I am fair and I will not back down". After a lengthy battle my case ended up in the higher courts and through the continuous fight my case was eventually dismissed. I couldn't believe it. Michael stood beside me the whole way. Thank you Michael for my future, my family and my freedom. Worth every dollar and then some.

Absolutely the best
Michael is very dedicated to his cases. I have had him work on multiple cases for me and he was able to get them all thrown out! I would definitely recommend his law firm to anyone who wants the best!

The absolute best attorney in the state of Michigan
If you want a lawyer who is going to fight for you and stand up to the judge on what’s right and what’s wrong, Michael and his associates are who you need and want. I had a complicated CPS case that started in Alabama and got transferred back to Michigan. My child was taken over my husband having cannabis in the trunk of my car. It is illegal in Alabama but legal in Michigan but the Michigan court was trying to enforce Alabama’s harsh cannabis laws. Michael was not having it and argued a very strong argument, which in result changed the outcome of the hearing. The courts was absolutely not planning on returning my child at the beginning of the hearing but after Michael made his argument and pointed out the true facts and laws (he is so intelligent and swiftly with words) the courts had no choice but to rule in our favor. I have to include that as soon as the hearing started the court tried to throw some curve balls in saying they never received the motion to return child and that they would set another date for that motion but Michael still persisted to argue the motion and even challenged the court on statements they made. He is not scared of no judge and no prosecutor. He reads through every paper of your case and tears through every word of it. He is organized and on his top game. I walked into that court room with no hope of my son being returned to me yet (not bc of Michael but bc of what my case worker told me would happen) and now I sit writing this review 4 days later with my son crawling all over me at home. Michael and his associates will make sure you have the best defense you could ever ask for. I’m living proof.

Medical Marijuana 2010
Review: I can't express enough how grateful I am for the exceptional legal representation I received from Attorney Michael Komorn my medical marijuana case from 2010. From the moment I met Michael, their dedication and expertise shone through. Their in-depth knowledge of the complex legal landscape surrounding medical marijuana was evident as they navigated my case with finesse and precision. Michael exhibited unparalleled professionalism and genuine empathy, ensuring I felt supported and understood throughout the entire process. Thanks to their tireless efforts, my case was Expunged after13 years, allowing me to move forward with my life. I highly recommend Attorney Michael Komorn to anyone in need of top-tier legal assistance.

Attorney that will fight for his clients rights and freedom.
I hired Michael due to false accusations that had been put against me by someone who had a previous past of lying to the court system. I was applying for an amazing job when I found out about the alleged accusations against me. Michael is thorough in asking his clients questions during conversations, and from there he strategically makes a defense for court. He treats every case as if it's going to trial, and plans accordingly. He privately spoke with the prosecuting attorney, and made it so I never had to go in front of a judge at trial. Michael is very precise with his law studies, and is not afraid to correct people who work for the court if they're wrong. He communicates with his clients in a very professional manner, and always answers back to texts and calls. Clients always come first! Michael makes you feel like you are his number 1 priority the whole time during a case despite other cases being handled at the same time. He walks in with a presence that gives people the immediate impression that he is in the court to take care of serious business, he will fight until the end, and won't settle until he gets what the client desires as the outcome of the case.

From Life in Prison to Probation!!!
Michael Komorn and his team at Komorn Law are among the absolute best attorneys in the state of Michigan. I have been in and out of trouble since I was 17 years old. I am currently 41 and still on probation. But I'm not in jail or doing life in prison thanks to Michael Komorn and his team! Michael is not afraid to go up against the state of Michigan and has actually sued the state on a number of occasions and won. He is my 1st choice for criminal defense attorneys!!!

Drug defense case
I hired a lawyer before Michael (was looking at 4-5 years in prison) just for some marijuana. My old lawyer wanted me to take the felony and they would drop the misdemeanor. Because "it was clear" and he couldn't find any "loop arounds" so I fired him and hired Michael! Was the best thing I could have possibly did for myself in this case. He drove all the way up to gaylord to take my case on (case been going on for OVER 2 years now) Michael fought hard in my case and after today's court looks like all charges will be dropped very soon! Id highly recommended hiring him for your cases as well. If I ever run into another issue like this they will be my go to 100%. Only lawyer I trust taking on a case like this. A+ to Michael and Steve APPRECIATE YOU GUYS so much thank you!

Best Attorney in All of Michigan
I feel very blessed to have found the perfect attorney in in Michigan let alone St. Clair County. But I feel even more blessed to have to have found Michael Kormorn. My charges were many, it all seemed so hopeless. I went to attorney after after attorney who kept telling me to “go ahead just plead guilty”, I wasn’t guilty, so I refused to plead guilty (That’s why so many attorneys in St. Clair County have such great “win” rates) THEN a friend recommended Michael. Honestly, I thought it would be more of the same. But not him, he was honestly my knight in shining armor. During this time my family really got to know Michael. He came to our house to explain a very scary process to my very scared teenage children even. Michael always went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and explain every part of every step in the process to us. He was extremely flexible with our schedules. We also found Michael to be extremely hard working and it was always clear that he had our best interest in mind. Michael is fun, kind, and a true pleasure to be around. We always felt like we were his only clients because he was so responsive and proactive. When the court process finally started we got to meet Michael the bulldog. His tenacity and resolve to get the charges dropped was apparent. He was confident and reliable during the entire court process. And ALL of my charges were DROPPED INDEED! It was a beautiful sight watching him transform in a courtroom and go toe to toe with the sheriff’s department, prosecutors, and judges! I am happy and proud to call Michael my Attorney for life, but also an advisor and friend! Trust me, you will not go wrong having Michael Komorn defend you, because defend you he will!

Re: CBD case
Excellent in collaborating with the Union Attorney and winning my case in Arbitration. Michael was very thorough & knowledgeable in educating everyone involved on the thresholds & legal criteria of THC that appeared on a random drug test. Michael helped prove there were no workplace policy or procedures violations. Michael has my strongest recommendation and I am very grateful to him & his staff.

Michael Komorn is a True Champion
If you are looking for an attorney that is going to stand up for you and your rights, truly fight for you and not get bullied by the system, Michael Komorn is your guy, and the Komorn Law Firm is your team. Michael successfully represented my case for a 2A rights restoration appeal and not only earned his fee, but my gratitude, respect and appreciation. On the morning of my hearing date, the court docket was loaded and several cases were called prior to mine. I can only speculate that the Judge must have had a rough weekend because on this Monday morning, the atmosphere in the courtroom was intense and adversarial. I didn't seem to matter what side of a particular case counsel was on, if you were an attorney in front of this Judge on that morning, you were in for a rough ride. As cases were called and heard, I began to get an uneasy feeling and anxiety that this was not going to go well for me. True to my suspicions, when my case was called, the Judge came out swinging and Michael immediately seemed to be on the ropes. Michael couldn't get two words out in response to any query before the Judge would cut him off and the frustration was beginning to show. Michael however persisted with what I thought was a professional effort to present the facts and at one point, the Judge even threatened Michael with contempt. Everything the Judge had asked for during the session was right there in the filling, she just refused to look at it. The Judge eventually decided to take a pass on ruling the case and I wasn't quite sure what was going to happen next. My mind was reeling from the incredulousness of what had just occurred. It felt as if I was in the middle of a day-time TV show. After about two hours, my case was recalled before the Judge. In this session, the atmosphere was completely different. The conversation was professional and courteous. Michael was allowed to present the facts as they were provided with the filling and the Judge respectfully allowed them into the record. Michael skillfully navigated the session to allow my personal testimony to be presented before the Judge. Given this opportunity, I knew this would be my best chance to provide convincing and compelling evidence to the Judge. Michael pursued a strategic line of questioning that took the testimony right to the heart of the issue. The evidence and testimony presented represented an overwhelming preponderance and the Judge dutifully ruled in my favor. I believe justice was served on this day and the "system" worked. Michael and his team stood with me and did not back down in the face of adversity. Many thanks to Michael and the Komorn Law Firm and to the Judge for doing the right thing. I know things are getting crazy in our world today, however, having faith in GOD and doing the right thing in spite of it all is what will see us through to a better day. MP

The Best Legal Representation
We hired Komorn Law PLLC to handle a tricky and challenging legal issue, involving my employment. Mr. Komorn and his team, were smart, responsive, aggressive and relentless at bringing me the win. I needed a win, and any other result would have literally ruined my life. Even though at the outset of their representation they told me they can’t promise or guarantee me any results. I could tell by the way they analyzed the case and discussed it with me, that they are highly focused on winning. In fact every time I interacted with Michael and his firm about my case, I was always left with the impression that their intention was always my best interest and best outcome for my case. In addition to making this terrible ordeal go away, they made me feel like I was part of their family.
