After I was charged in Isabella Co. with 6 Felonies, I knew right away there was no way I was going to hire local council. I knew I had to go down state to get the best. After 2 calls and a consultation, the battle commenced.
I can only describe it as a Rope-a-Dope type of court battle. We took blow after blow in a one sided courtroom that leaned to the prosecution and law dogs during the preliminary exam that lasted the whole summer.
It was clear at this point in the fight, that victory would come at a cost, if at all. So into the later rounds Michael and I fought, sticking to our game plan, keeping our gloves up so to endure the constant barrage of punches thrown by those sworn to protect and serve. But the enemy was so used to winning every fight that they failed to recognize our secret weapon laying in wait.
So with snow now flying and the smell of a new year in front of us, we entered into the final round of this epic battle. We knew after the beating we took in the earlier rounds with denial after denial on 15 motions, that it was going to have to be a knock out blow for us to win. So into the testimony we fought, bruised but not beaten. We hit them hard with everything we had on all 3 prongs of a section 8. They tried to bring in support for the final round from the drug task force but what the prosecution failed to see was that, between rounds, we were injected with a steroid cocktail made up of 3.3 million voters who would ultimately prove to be the boost Michael and I needed to assert our affirmative defense and knock our opponent down, in a one and done trip to the canvas. Justice Served.
So yeah, Michael Komorn is the greatest Attorney ever.

If you require legal representation with a medical marijuana case, you need Mr. Michael Komorn and his staff. My wife and I have nothing but superlative and pleasant things to say about Michael. Most Judges and Law Enforcement Agencies do not fully understand the Michigan Medical Marihuana Law because of the conflict with the Michigan Public Health Code for which Marijuana remains against Michigan Law.
We have known professionally Mr. Michael Komorn, Attorney at Law for over 8 years. We were arrested and confiscated in Warren, Bloomfield, Sterling Heights and Rochester Hills for Manufacturing with intent to deliver and selling to a Police Officer, in spite of us being Licensed Patients and Caregivers.
Initially Mr. Komorn was not allowed to use the term Michigan Medical Marihuana Law in a Michigan Court of law. Michael was charged with Contempt of Court many, many times facing jail with many Judges. However, Michael did not back down because of his brilliant knowledge and belief in his interpretation of the MMM Law.
Our Case in Oakland County was dismissed by the Chief Judge after she threatened Michael with contempt and to dismiss our Section 8 Hearing. Michael then proceeded to set a legal precedent in Oakland County Court and our case was dismissed.
If you want the best legal defense possible, hire Michael Komorn now. He is a great friend, confidant and he is real, no bull just fact. Great men like Michael, only come along every once in a great while. We need more leaders in our communities like Michael. If you value your life and your family, I wouldn’t trust anyone but Michael Komorn, Attorney at Law.

Michael Komorn is a godsend. On January 14th, 2016 our 3 grandchildren were taken by CPS, and our daughter Jen was arrested. For 11 months we fought to get our grandchildren placed with us. Of course the homestudy was not approved. Jens court appointed lawyers did nothing to help her, but tell her to take a plea so she wouldn't permanently lose her kids. Jen was pregnant and sentencedo to a year in jail or until she has given birth. Again no help from her lawyers. Cps threatened to take her unborn child as well. We got in touch with Jeff Frazier who filled Michael Komorn in on the situation. When Jens baby was born cps came in at the 12 hour mark and stole the baby out of the room. We called Jeff, who called Michael. Court was set for 11:00 the next morning. The crew jumped in the car early the next morning and drove to Traverse City to help us out. Michael was able to do in one court hearing that 3 other lawyers could not do in 11 months. Jen is now getting all 4 of her kids back in record time. Thank you Michael Komorn and team. You are amazing!!!

Michael Komorn is one of the most dedicated, caring, and compassionate attorneys I know. I have talked to him about his clients' matters and I can tell he will do everything within his power to benefit his clients. Everyone in the medical marijuana community is better off because of Michael.
