  • Roger Anthony Moss

    Dean Smart gives generously to the community by offering many contributions to the pages of Avvo. His answers are always thoughtful and concise. They show deep understanding of human and business elements that must be considered first, in order to provide sound legal advice. I applaud him for toiling in the emotionally difficult world of HOA law, and would immediately engage his services if I faced an HOA problem. I am grateful for his service.
