About me

My primary focus is representing condominium and homeowner associations - I am a community association lawyer, and I focus on general counsel, not litigation. However, my firm is well versed in all aspects of community association law, including general counsel (my focus), assessment collection, and litigation of all types including first-party insurance claims, construction defect and alternative dispute resolution.
