Bill has over a decade of experience in community association law. His wide-ranging practice focuses on both general service and litigation, which gives him a unique perspective.

Bill defends associations, boards of directors and property managers against breach of fiduciary duty and professional liability claims, breach of contract actions, tort claims, fair housing and discrimination complaints, condemnation actions and other corporate and real estate disputes. Bill has extensive experience defending complex, multi-party lawsuits involving allegations of water intrusion, structural deflection and mold. Bill also has experience representing associations in covenant enforcement actions against property owners.

With his significant trial experience, Bill knows what it takes to successfully defend his clients in court. Bill also knows that his clients value cost-efficient, practical representation and creative solutions. He always thinks outside-the-box and has successfully resolved a number of complex matters through alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and judicially-hosted settlement conferences.

Bill’s litigation experience and time in the courtroom helps him provide valuable guidance to his clients on corporate governance matters, operational issues and best practices, including contract negotiation, zoning requests, and real estate matters.

Prior to joining the firm, Bill practiced with Weissman, Nowack, Curry & Wilco, P.C. in Atlanta and Whiteford, Taylor & Preston, LLP in Washington, D.C.
