Community Associations

We have one of the largest and best-regarded community association practices in the mid-Atlantic region, representing more than 800 condominiums, planned communities and housing cooperatives, of all sizes and types, in Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia and Delaware. Our firm’s Community Association Section, made up of approximately 30 attorneys and an experienced professional support staff, includes nationally-known lawyers with extensive experience in this field, including two past Chapter presidents of the Community Associations Institute, two Charter Members of the national College of Community Association Lawyers, and Community Associations Institute board, committee and faculty members.

We provide comprehensive legal advice and guidance to our community association clients, including review, revision and advice with respect to governing documents and rules, as well guidance on contracts, finance, board operations, and the human dynamics of community association governance.  We represent our community association clients in all types of litigation and alternative dispute resolution, and we serve as our clients’ advocates in dealings with homeowners, contractors, financial institutions, developers and government agencies.  We have extensive experience with rule and covenant enforcement, delinquent assessment collection, employment law, fair housing law, environmental law, construction litigation, and many other legal disciplines.

Since we understand the time pressures and economic realities faced by community association boards, our goal always is to provide responsive, practical and cost-effective legal advice and assistance whenever our clients need it.  Our attorneys and staff utilize the latest technology to provide efficient and timely service, and prompt, effective communication with our clients.

Our firm is one of the leaders in the practice and development of community association law, both regionally and nationally. Our experience, resources and insight allow us to give our clients the latest and most effective problem-solving approaches and the best-informed advice and assistance in this new and rapidly changing area of the law. Beyond that, our firm’s broad and diverse legal experience and resources can assist our community association clients in almost any substantive legal field.
