Our Firm represents a number of community associations in a wide range of matters related to: governance and governing documents; relationships with owners, neighbors and vendors; contract review and negotiation; employment disputes; government oversight; fiduciary and other duties and obligations; and collection of assessments, including demand letters, payment plan negotiations, lien filings, foreclosures and lawsuits.
Our community association experience includes:
The Real Estate and Community Associations Practice also assists a wide variety of organizations with internal procedures and obligations, and counsels organizational clients on employment matters, key employee agreements and litigation avoidance strategies, and ensures that they are in compliance with laws that govern their operation.
The Firm also pursues delinquent unit owners for past due assessments that are not pending in litigation or association-initiated foreclosure proceedings. This process involves reviewing the association's governing documents and creating or modifying collections policies and attendant rules.
We are a “Business Partner” with the Community Associations Institute (CAI) — an advocacy and trade association made up of property managers, community associations, law firms and other service providers. Cary Devorsetz, who manages this practice area, serves as Co-Chair of CAI’s DC Legislative Action Committee. In 2019, CAI’s Washington Metropolitan Chapter named Mr. Devorsetz Advocate of the Year.
