The closing yesterday went as smooth as one could expect for the situation. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you, and please extend my gratitude to the rest of the staff at the Meisner Law Group, for your diligent effort in helping me navigate through the legal process, and in reaching a resolution regarding this matter.
“Kay’s presentation for our association members to help them understand why it was necessary to have our legal documents brought up to date was so well done. And much appreciated by those of us serving on the board.”
Bob Meisner is a stand out, experienced attorney with integrity and a long history of accomplishment. Brian Harris is thoughtful and thorough. Kay Michaels is professional and on point. We have had 12 years of experience with The Meisner Law Group. They are TOP DOG!
“Thank you and Mr. Meisner for your help in the matter. We feel we were well represented.”
Thank you so much for providing Kay today at our owners meeting. She made an excellent presentation and answered all their questions. She was exactly what was needed.
Alan, thank you very much for your superb efforts on our behalf. We are very appreciative of your help and assistance in addressing this matter relative to the alleged violations. Thanks so much for intervening on our behalf, and taking care of this in a thoroughly professional manner. We will recommend your firm to our friends.
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.

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).

Our firm has had the privilege of representing Country Club Estates Condominium Association on a continuous basis since the late 1970’s. We have seen the Association develop policies and procedures which streamline its operation, a very successful one I might add. We are appreciative of the many persons who have served as officers and directors of the Association with whom we have had an excellent relationship and look forward to a long and continuing relationship with a great condominium association.
Thank you so much for you participation in today’s meeting. Your knowledge and experience added more depth to the conversations and discussions. I appreciate your time in attending.
Thanks so much!

Hi Brian (Harris),
With this email, wanted to formally say Thank You! for your legal counseling and related legal action.
It’s especially rewarding to my wife & I,.. in that with the settlement we actually came out thousands ahead even,…after “the other side” basically “Paid Your Fees” and! paid for a significant amount of the damages… with the settlement monies we received today.
- I had it in my minds eye that we had paid you more than we actually did over the last 8 months or, so.
- But, you got the job done, made our point and put money back into our pocket (from the settlement).
In summary, your “counseling” saved us money.

I had the opportunity to read your book “Condo Living”. It was awesome! I think this should be a mandatory read for all present and future board members. I really enjoyed it, that I have recommended it to the rest of the board. I checked it out from the library and enjoyed it so much, that I have gone to Amazon.com and purchased your book. This way I can highlight and make notes on important issues you addressed. I would like to know how I can obtain the “Condominium Operation” book. Did not see that on Amazon.

Dear Mr. Meisner,
On behalf of NALS of Michigan, I would like to congratulate on your selection by Michigan Lawyers Weekly as a member of the 2014 class of Leaders in Law. NALS is the national association for legal support professionals dedicated to providing legal education, nationally recognized certifications, and professional development to its members. It is comprised of national, state and local chapters.
“Thank you for handling the situation in a courteous fashion. I was not in the best of moods when I called you (just in case you were distracted and didn’t notice). While I am still not happy about paying a few hundred dollars for a lost check, your professionalism, at least, makes it a little easier to bear. I am sure your job has, at times, created some unpleasantness, so the least I can do is let you know. I thank you for your time and patience.”
On behalf of the College of Community Association Lawyers Board of Governors, I want to personally thank you for your time and energy over the past two years. I realize that taking time away from your practice and personal commitments is a sacrifice that not all members of CAI are willing to make. Your leadership and contributions have helped CCAL move to the next level and continue to provide our members with increased value and improved recognition.

Dear Mr. Meisner,
I recently read your book on Condo Living and found it to be excellent. As a former Florida condo owner and board member, I found your treatment of all aspects of condo life to be exactly as it is. Unfortunately, I never had the experience in a conversion condo and wish I had read your book prior to purchasing my current unit. The descriptions of conversion developers is so precise and exactly what we are experiencing. We are pre-transition (only about 30% sold) but have no board, no association, an association fee that is woefully inadequate, and now the developer is invoicing” us calling it a special assessment to pay the delinquent fees of our fellow owners. The developer took no legal action to collect monthly assessment from these people for more than a year and those of us who paid our monthly dues have to pay for those that didn’t. This feels like extortion and I’m sure this scenario will be repeated again next year. I am really sorry that I purchased this unit and I wish that the State of Michigan had some effective complaint mechanism for Developers that willfully violate the Condo Act. Again, thank you for such an excellent book.
