Community Association Law

Assessment Collection

Condominium and Homeowner association assessments are the life blood of the organizations.  When owners don’t pay on time, the burden often falls on the other owners to make up the difference needed to pay the bills.  We work with the association to help bring delinquent owners current.

Bylaw Enforcement

The members of the board of directors have a fiduciary responsibility to the association members to exercise due care in performing their duties, and to act reasonably and in good faith in accord with the best interests of the association.

Document Amendments

The responsibilities of the board of directors include not only a duty to enforce the documents, but to take action to amend the documents so as to keep the documents from becoming obsolete due to changes in community association law and practice.


  • I worked with Brian Harris on a mold issue in my detached condo unit. I can't speak highly enough about his professionalism and wonderful personality. It was a pleasure to have him represent me during this difficult time for me. He was great in communicating with me in a timely manner and was able to negotiate a reasonable ending to the problem. - M. Flowers

  • Our Association values the guidance and alerts the Meisner Law Group provides us. Obviously, we prefer not having to take legal actions against any of our owners, while knowing if we do, it is handled professionally and promptly. We also value the Group’s work in monitoring and working with our Michigan legislature to head off bad new Association law, and promote new needed changes to Michigan Association law. Being an older, established owner-controlled Association, we don’t deal with any problems associated with complex developers, but are quite concerned with new serious threats, (i.e. like reverse and interest only mortgages can cause without adequate legal recourse for the Association).

Robert Meisner – First Michigan Member of College of Community Association Lawyers

Since 1993, the Community Associations Institute has recognized excellence in the practice of community association law through the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL). Of the thousands of attorneys practicing community association law in the United States, fewer than 150 have been granted membership in the College. Fellows of the College distinguish themselves through contributions to the development of community association law. Their service is demonstrated by a commitment to educate and empower boards and residents of the more than 320,000 community associations across the country. CCAL attorneys commit themselves to high standards of professional and ethical conduct and work to create a community of experienced legal professionals to advance community association law for the betterment of the communities they serve.

Robert Meisner was the first and one of only two community association attorneys from Michigan invited to become a member of this select group.
