Jeff Vollmer is a Member in the firm. He graduated from Wayne State University School of Law in 2003, Cum Laude, and was granted membership in the Order of the Coif. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Rhode Island in 2000.

Jeff began as a law clerk at Wegner and Associates PC in 2002 and continued on with the firm as an associate attorney in 2003. In March of 2013, Jeff was promoted to shareholder, and the firm became Wegner Vollmer PC. Wegner Vollmer PC joined with Makower Abbate Guerra PLLC in 2015 to form Makower Abbate Guerra Wegner Vollmer PLLC. Jeff’s practice has focused on representing hundreds of community associations in a variety of areas, including: (i) drafting condominium documents and subdivision declarations; (ii) interpretation and enforcement of condominium documents and subdivision declarations; (iii) civil litigation, both defending and prosecuting claims on behalf of community associations; (iv) lien foreclosures and creditor rights; (v) bankruptcy. That experience has prompted him to offer insight to community associations through numerous articles and seminars through United Condominium Owners of Michigan (UCOM) and Community Association Institute – Michigan Chapter (CAI).

In addition, Jeff has significant experience in landlord/tenant law, real estate matters and general civil litigation.
