About me

I focus my practice on real estate closings and community association law, specifically homeowners associations, condominium associations, and commercial associations, including mixed use, "green", and age-restricted community documents.  I help homeowners, developers, lenders, and others in creating, interpreting, enforcing, and administering these documents, including compliance with the Georgia Condominium Act, the Georgia POA Act (particuarly in adopting its terms), and other statutes that may apply.  As well, I assist in navigating the practicalities of running an association, including dealing with calling annual meetings, holding elections, or creating comitteess. 


 


In 2013, Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. named me the head of its residential and construction closing practice group. 


 


In addition, I have also mediated real-estate related disputes, with an emphasis on finding cost effective and realistic solutions. Using the insights I have learned through my representation of homeowners, lenders, developers, builders and association board members I am able to share perspectives that otherwise might not have been considered to bring parties closer together.


 


One of my toughest projects was to be part of the team, led by Thomas J. Andersen, responsible for negotiating and closing the purchase of the Beltline by one of our firm's clients in 2004 (Atlanta Business Chronicle’s "Deal of the Year 2004") and to remain involved with the continuing complex development issues that arose from the Beltline, including its sale to another development entity in late 2007 (the sale was listed in Atlanta Business Chronicle’s "Deal Makers" list, March 2008).
