Wayne Wegner – Prior to earning his law degree from the University of Detroit School of Law in 1975, Wayne Wegner received his MBA from Wayne State University. That second business degree gives Wayne the ability to deal with legal matters from a pragmatic approach so as to advise clients on both the legal and practical aspects of their legal matters. Upon graduating from law school, Wayne worked for a mid-sized law firm in Detroit, dealing with all aspects of real estate and corporate law, and later headed their litigation department. He left that firm in 1985 to open his own practice.

Wayne lived in a condominium for a number of years, and served on its advisory committee dealing with developer matters and transitioning to co-owner control. That gives him a good perspective on condominium living and problems with construction, development and management. He also taught a course on condominium ownership and management at Macomb Community College for over 20 years, and regularly speaks at conferences held by United Condominium Owners of Michigan and the Michigan Chapter of the Community Associations Institute. He serves on the board of CAI and is a past president.

Over the years, Wayne also developed a strong estate planning practice, drafting wills, trusts, powers of attorneys, designations of patient advocates and related estate planning documents. He is regularly involved in probate and trust administration matters. His experience, maturity and compassion gives him the ability to effectively deal with families in their estate matters, especially at a time of bereavement. Wayne also serves on the board of a charitable foundation and deals with various aspects of charitable giving.

Wayne is a veteran, having served in Vietnam.
