Homeowner and Condominium Associations
Ensuring Compliance & Resolving Disputes
We work with condominium and homeowner association boards and their members to keep associations running smoothly. Our attorneys regularly advise on issues such as:
- Board governance
- Compliance with applicable laws and regulations
- Covenants and other association documents
- Resolution of member violations and disputes
- Contract review, negotiation and preparation
- Unit sale disclosures
From six-unit condos to thousand-lot lake associations, our attorneys keep you on track.
Mark McAndrew is a phenomenal attorney. He did a great job keeping us informed in all areas. The case took us well over a year and a half and Mark proved to be a trustworthy, hard-working attorney that was definitely fighting for our best interest. He is honest and open and will let you know what your odds/options are and what you’re up against. I would hire him again if needed
