Law Firm Overview

The firm of Seglund Gabe Pawlak & Groth, PLC is made up of a group of dedicated lawyers who share the common goal of providing the residents and business owners of Southeastern Michigan with legal services of the highest quality. For more than 50 years, the current members of the firm and their predecessors have professionally and successfully represented their clients, while also maintaining their status as model community members. And today we strive to continue to be important and well-trusted members of the Southeastern Michigan community.

The History of Seglund Gabe Pawlak & Groth, PLC

The firm was originally founded by Gene Schnelz, a now-retired Oakland County Circuit Court Judge. Schnelz, who is from Walled Lake, Michigan, formed the firm with two other partners, Harold Bulgarelli and Gary Allen. Eventually all three men were elected to the judiciary, while Thomas J. Connelly continued the practice they had started up until 2010, when he became “Of Counsel” to the firm, a role that he continues to play to this day. In May 2013, the attorneys associated with the long established Royal Oak firm of Seglund Gabe Pawlak & Groth, PLC, joined the firm, expanding our municipal, real estate and business practices and adding the experienced family law attorney, Charles H. Gabe.

The strong principles and philosophies of the founding partners have been shared by all attorneys who have been associated with this firm throughout the past five decades, ensuring that all clients of the firm are represented in an efficient, prompt and professional manner.
