We understand the unique challenges associations face today.
Our attorneys consistently advise clients on a number of legal issues facing community associations, including document creation, review and amendment; elections, insurance claims, covenant enforcement and assessment collection. Our direct approach gives clients the information and guidance they need to make decisions in a timely and cost-effective manner. We work with boards of directors and their managers to avoid problems and minimize risk. Clients value our personal attention and responsiveness they receive. We keep clients up-to-date on pending matters and changes to the law that may affect their organizations. We realize that important issues often arise outside of normal business hours, so one of our attorneys is always available for consultation, either in the office or by phone or e-mail.
STRONG DISPUTE RESOLUTION, COVENANT ENFORCEMENT AND LITIGATION
Disputes and enforcement can raise questions that require complex legal analysis. Our attorneys review individual situations and provide well-reasoned legal opinions. These matters include large construction/renovation projects, routine service and maintenance items, conflicts in enforcing the association’s governing instruments, architectural control problems and problems with individual owners.
From an owner’s couch on the front porch to the person who thinks purple is a perfect house color, our attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with a myriad of enforcement issues. When needed, we help our clients initiate actions to enforce association covenants and rules. In addition, our attorneys are skilled litigators who counsel our clients in the defense of all matters, including claims involving civil claims, negligence and breach of fiduciary duty actions.
EFFECTIVE AND UP-TO-DATE COLLECTIONS
The collection of delinquent assessments can be a frustrating and time-consuming task. We assist our association clients with collections using a vigorous and consistent approach. We are experienced in filing liens against individual unit owners, initiating lawsuits for the collection of assessments and seeking enforcement of those judgments through garnishments, and, if necessary, foreclosing upon the property.
