About Me

Roger has been practicing law since 1998.  He worked with a few small general practice firms before settling in to representing community associations in 2002.  With almost 10 years of working FOR Arizona's HOAs and Condominums, he now works to represent the rights of homeowners.  He's putting the "H" back in HOA and provides Arizona homeowners with advice and litigation services related to their HOA or Condo legal issue.  Roger previously blogged about Association issues and now publishes a blog at his own website.  He is also active on Twitter @RogerWoodHOALaw.  Roger is also one of Arizona's preminent speakers on Association legal issues.  Now, he hopes to use those skills to get Arizona homeowners good legal information about HOA concerns, legislation and legal trends.
