I spent over 3 years with Fred litigating a case against my HOA. Fred is one of the most knowledgeable lawyers for HOA and Condo law. This was new ground and much of what evolved was without solid precedence. His ability to research the law and develop a strategy is his biggest selling point. In the end he represented me against 3-5 firms before we finally settled the case.
I am very happy with Fred. He is a nice guy and has a ton of funny stories, but you want him because he is a great advocate first. He is one of the few who will represent the small guy.

My husband and I met with Mr. O'Neal about our HOA and MRTA. He was very well versed in this topic and made us feel like we were going in the right direction. I am a Board member on a very difficult Board and Fred gave me the advice I needed to hear. He is extremely easy to talk with, has a wonderful knowledge of the topic and is extremely accommodating (met us 1/2 way between his home base and ours). Would I recommend him - YES. Our HOA attorney in Bradenton gave us the wrong info about MRTA and could cost us a lot if we listen to him. Thank you, Fred for your time and info.

I went to a meeting at an HOA that Mr. O'Neal was a speaker. He took his time to speak to a large group of homeowners about the MRTA act in Florida and I must say I was very impressed. His knowledge of the Statute was so great and I learned so much about this very obscure law. I don't think many homeowners and lawyers are well versed in the meaning of this law. I will definitely go to Mr. O'Neal to aid me in my quest for the truth of MRTA with my covenants. Thank you, sir, for a great two hours and hopefully you can help us with our needs.

Mr. O'Neal has been exceedingly helpful when we ran into issues with our HOA. He was kind, and patient and guided us and advocated for us when our HOA and their attorney tried to bully and threaten us. He helped us prove that their C&R's were expired and thus obsolete and unenforceable. He sent them a notice to back off and when their attorney didn't listen he sent her what I can only describe as the most impressively written piece of work I think I've ever read in an email. Now, over a year later they have resurfaced and began to harass us again with their new CAM company behind them and even a year later he remembers us and our circumstances and is ready to go to bat. He is honest and trustworthy and will not let you fall. Before Mr. O'Neal, I consulted with multiple real estate attorneys seeking a way out of our "Mandatory" HOA. Every attorney scoffed and told me that just short of a miracle, there was nothing we could do. We knew they were wrong. Then we were introduced to Fred. He's come to our rescue yet again and I couldn't be more grateful to him. He is well versed in Florida law, particularly when it comes to HOA concerns. You won't find a better man to represent you.
