Expertise Matters. Put an Expert on Your Team.
Since 2008, I have been representing condominium and homeowners associations throughout the State of Florida in the interpretation and enforcement of their covenants, restrictions, and rules and regulations.
Whether your community consists of many hundreds of single family homes, townhomes, condominium units, or a combination of all three, or is much more modest in size and structure, you deserve specialized legal knowledge and personal attention to meet the needs of your association. Call me for a no-cost consultation.
An association's annual meeting and election must be conducted with great precision to satisfy the requirements of Florida Statutes, the Florida Administrative Code, and each association's own governing documents. One misstep may call result in an election dispute, DBPR investigation, and overturning of election results. Since 2008, I have been conducting annual meetings and elections for association clients, beginning with an analysis of the requirements set forth in each association's governing documents, preparation of the notice packages, and conducting the meeting itself.
Having an expert at the helm can mean the difference between a smooth and efficient election process or uncertainty for months while an election dispute is investigated and resolved. Put an expert on your team.
Recall disputes, as with many other areas of condominium and homeowners association law, are highly technical and very time-sensitive . One misstep may have very consequential results for your association . In my years of experience in representing community associations, I have successfully defended recall arbitration disputes and have successfully prosecuted recall disputes as well. Protect your association. Call me for a consultation.
At the start of a contractual relationship with a vendor, be it a new vendor or a vendor who has been servicing a community for many years, everyone typically expects things to run smoothly. There may be a certain level of trust between the parties and because of that trust, sometimes only scant attention is given to the contract.
Far too often, unfortunately, this can prove to be a costly mistake. In my many years of experience in drafting and reviewing contracts, I have found (and eliminated) truly outrageous contract provisions that could have had dire consequences for an association.
On the other hand, clients have also come to me long after a contract was signed and a dispute had already arisen. While I can certainly help you protect your rights and resolve that dispute, it is far less costly to have a contract reviewed before it is finalized and signed, as contrasted with having to extricate a client from a bad contract or mitigate the damages.
Whether you are in the early stages of negotiating the terms of a contract, or dealing with a dispute that has arisen after the fact, I can help.
Associations are constantly faced with decision-making challenges regarding disability accommodation requests, emotional support or service animals, and unfavorable background check results with respect to tenant-screening.
A wrong turn with any of these issues could give rise to very expensive discrimination claims. Let me help you with these issues. Call me for a no-cost consultation.
This happens far too often. An otherwise peaceful community is suddenly at odds with a resident because of excessive noise at all hours of the night, unattended animals, outright hostile and aggressive behavior, taking on boarders, or frequent short-term rentals turning into party-houses and interfering with other residents' quiet enjoyment of their home or unit.
I can help you resolve each of these issues.
