An emphasis on prevention and a commitment to availability
We know that even when performing their regular duties, community associations can come into conflict with property owners, local municipalities, and state and federal law. Rather than act and then try to correct, we are firm believers in the practice of preventive law - get the counsel you need before making a decision, not after you make it. Clearly every community association needs an attorney, so making the right selection is crucial.
When your attorney can provide not only legal counsel but also clear-minded business advice, you will be better informed and more assured of making the correct decisions. When you have full access to that counsel, you can avoid disputes, forestall litigation, and preserve amity within the association.
Because association directors must be able to contact an attorney as needed, we developed a flat fee retainer program that allows us to serve as your legal counsel on an ongoing basis. The program includes free telephone consultation with our attorneys to encourage ongoing communications before, as and after a decision is made regarding legal issues in your community. As we believe the successful practice of preventative law requires the participation of directors and managers. We also provide on-going education classes and regular updates and articles for our retainer clients on legal changes and trends affecting community associations to keep them and their community managers up-to-date on the laws affecting community associations.
Isn't this the smartest approach?
