Summary of Experience
Owen J. Cummings founded the Firm in 1965. He is a partner in our Livonia officer where he concentrates his practice on municipal law, insurance defense, and estate planning.
One of Mr. Cummings greatest professional accomplishments is his assistance in the formation of Michigan Municipal Risk Management Authority (MMRMA). In 1980, he and Bernard McClorey (a co-founder of our Firm) created an organization that joined governmental entities together to secure insurance coverage that promised stability of premium and far-reaching protection. Mr. Cummings worked countless hours to get legislation passed to allow this type of insurance coverage since nothing like it had ever been done before. The hours he put into organizing the structure of MMRMA has helped it grow into what it is today.
