Todd Skowronski is an attorney at the Firm. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Michigan State University. He went on to graduate magna cum laude from Michigan State University College of Law, where he was a Dean King Scholar, an Associate Editor of the Michigan State Law Review and received the Jurisprudence Award for Research, Writing, and Advocacy. During law school he also served as an extern law clerk for the Honorable Judge Avern Cohn of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, and later with the Honorable Judge David W. McKeague of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Todd began as a civil and white collar criminal litigator at a large Detroit-based law firm, representing clients in State and Federal Courts, administrative agencies and in arbitration. A seasoned litigator, he believes that litigation is best viewed as a last resort, and should only be undertaken when the alternatives have failed or if litigation presents the greatest, or only, chance for success. Todd was named a Top Lawyer in Metro Detroit for litigation by dBusiness Magazine in 2013, and has been named a Super Lawyers Rising Star from 2013 through 2017. With his focus on community association, condominium, and real property law, Todd can advise clients on a wide range of legal matters, from all types of litigation, to association governance and management, contract negotiation, bylaw enforcement, assessment collection, document interpretation and amendment, civil rights/fair housing complaints, and more. When he is not pursuing justice in court, Todd enjoys playing ice hockey as a goalie as often as he can. He can build a computer from scratch, enjoys reading about history (and in particular the history of warfare), and is always curious about the ever-evolving state of science and technology, and their impact on culture. Todd and his wife Carolyn try to get out and visit the increasingly-excellent restaurant/craft-brewery scene in metro-Detroit whenever they can. --- - Named to the 2018 Michigan Rising Star list by Super Lawyers. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected to receive this honor.
