He has litigated cases and or represented clients in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Courts of Common Pleas. He has also litigated cases in the state and federal courts of Ohio, Maryland, Texas, California, Louisiana and Florida and has represented clients in matters in Illinois, New York, Virginia, New Jersey, Vermont, Nebraska, West Virginia and North Carolina.

Locally, Attorney Comitz is very active in charitable and community related matters. Presently, he serves on the board of directors for the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts and the Hollenback Cemetery Association. He previously served via a judicial appointment on the board of the Luzerne County Board of Elections and served on the board of directors for the Luzerne County Convention Center Authority.
