Kevin Hirzel, Esq., a partner and Chair of the Community Association Practice Group at Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. (“CMDA”), has been granted membership in the College of Community Association Lawyers (“CCAL”)—one of fewer than 175 attorneys nationwide to be admitted to the prestigious organization. Fellows of the College are among the most respected community association attorneys in the country.
CCAL was established in 1993 by Community Associations Institute (“CAI”), with membership consisting of attorneys who have distinguished themselves through contributions to the evolution and practice of community association law. CCAL fellows are also recognized for committing themselves to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.
Mr. Hirzel is a member of the CAI National Government and Public Affairs Committee that sets national policy for community associations. He also serves as a chairman of the Special Committee for Condominiums, PUDs, & Cooperatives of the State Bar of Michigan’s Real Property Law Section. Mr. Hirzel is a chairman of the Michigan CAI Legislative Action Committee and advocates on behalf of community associations regarding legislation that will impact Michigan community associations on a state and national level. He was named a Michigan “Rising Star” in real estate law by Super Lawyers Magazine from 2013-2017 and selected as a 2015 Up & Coming Lawyer by Michigan Lawyer’s Weekly. Mr. Hirzel represents community associations all over Michigan from CMDA’s offices in Clinton Township, Grand Rapids, Livonia and Traverse City.
CCAL provides a forum for the exchange of information among experienced legal professionals working for the advancement of community association governance. Its goals include promoting the highest standards of professional and ethical responsibility, improving and advancing community association law and practice, and facilitating the development of educational materials and programming pertaining to legal issues.
CAI is an international membership organization that was founded in 1973 and is dedicated to helping homeowner and condominium associations meet the expectations of their residents. More than 68 million Americans live in nearly 338,000 homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities. With nearly 35,000 members, CAI works in partnership with 63 affiliated chapters within the U.S., Canada, United Arab Emirates, and South Africa, as well as with housing leaders in several other countries including Australia, Spain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Kingdom.
