I'm very pleased with this firm and how easy it has been working with them. Everyone in their office is friendly and helpful and explains legal matters in a way that I can understand. They have been extremely helpful when it comes to explaining the collection process to my boards. All of the board members that have had a conversation with Valerie have come back to say how extremely helpful her information was and how she was able to communicate so they could understand things better.
I am a Community Association Manager with a very large Management Company on the Eastside. I manage several Associations, three of which Valerie has been engaged to facilitate the Association in recovering delinquent homeowners' assessments. I have found her to be extremely knowledgable in the governance for condominium and homeowner associations. Valerie reponds to questions in a prompt and concise manner, as well as thorough in her answers. I do plan to assign additional collection matters to Valerie in the near future and would feel very confident in recommending Valerie to anyone looking for competent and professional counsel.
I have worked with Valerie for about 3 years now on various association collections issues, and would recommend her highly. She's great at communicating in easy to understand terminology, and following up on her progress with Board members and myself. She's also easy to get ahold of, and gets back to you in a timely manner.
Prior to Valerie getting on Board with 3, now 7 of my 8 Condo and HO Association's 3 years ago, I always had communication issues wtih other Attorney's / Firms and lack of production. Since working (mainly) with Valerie and seeing what Condo Law Group can do , I actually feel extremely comfortable referring Association Board's over to her and them; in the past I was always hesitant. Valerie is very down to earth, understands what our client's best interests are, she is very personable, easy to understand, communicate wtih, and explains things easily to those not up to speed with legal jargan. I would recommend Valerie to any Association's in need of collection assistance, and not only for that but all other aspects of Condo and Homeowner Association related matters.
Valerie streamlined the collection process for all my clients and assisted the associations in my portfolio with significant reduction of delinquency amounts.
Valerie Oman is an attorney our condo had the misfortune of working with. To our surprise we were overbilled for several matters compared with previous legal advisors we had worked with and some issues were dragged out far more than necessary for billing purposes. The billings and purposes were quite overzealous and greedy.
Managing a portfolio of Condominium & Homeowners Associations in todays economy can be a challenge. Having a knowledgeable attorney that is dependable in communication and provides sensible legal advise for our clients is extremely important to overall client satisfation. Valerie provides those key services & more! Her proactive approach to client communication and advisement is also complimented by her obvious zeal for, & working knowledge of, the law. Her level-headed approach to debt collection and general counsel has always been based on the best overall outcome to the client. Even when the client may not initially recognize the advantage of following her advisement, she has a professionally unique ability to explain why her legal recommendations would be the most beneficial to the Association. Thank you Valerie (& everyone at CLG) for all you do for our mutual Clients!
I have worked with Valerie on several accounts. She is the first recommendation from me for an attorney to the Associations that we manage. She is very timely and responsive. She provides proactive solutions for our clients, Another thing I appreciate is that she is always willing to take the time to explain the options so that the client can make informed decisions. She is top notch in my book.
It is not often that one can say that one is so very satisfied with anyone's performance especially over time. In the case of Valerie Farris Oman we can say that she has consistently earned our praise and gratitude issue by issue and case after case.
We expected competent legal advice but Valerie has delivered extra value to our Homeowner's Association by providing guidance which has anticipated and avoided problems. She has diligently kept us informed about our cases in a very timely manner. She has been generous with our board by respectfully sharing her knowledge and she makes the effort to be certain that everyone on our Board understands the issues. She has proven to be a savvy negotiator.
Valerie has earned our trust and respect by bringing our cases to successful conclusion and by being certain that our Board does not stray from our chosen path. We feel fortunate to have found such a friendly and professional attorney.
After much revelation, I had come to realize the benefits of retaining a lawyer for my small business were just too great to ignore.
Valerie really is a rare gem. After meeting with her, I knew she was the one! She has a great personality, is easy to talk to, honest, ethical and extremely knowledgeable! Valerie is also very affordable for the expertise that she brings to the table.
Valerie offers great advance and friendly terms to show how much she cares about not only her clients, but also what she does. I have hired Valerie as my company's attorney and I know I am in good hands.
Whether the task entails demand letters, contracts, or (god forbid) going to trial, I know I have the perfect attorney on my side of the table.
