Community Association Law
At McCabe, Trotter & Beverly, we recognize the importance and complexity of association problems and the financial stigma associated with hiring an attorney.
Through our work with hundreds of association boards and community managers, our Firm has learned to speak the language of condominium and homeowner associations. This hands-on experience gives us a unique perspective on association issues and allows us to provide legal guidance designed to better the community.
McCabe, Trotter & Beverly recognizes that one of the biggest responsibilities an association board has is assessment collection. Our Firm implements the policies set forth by the board in a way that is both effective and cost efficient. Our collections team works closely with the board or community manager to provide direct access to collection accounts and prompt responses to collections inquiries. In doing this, the board is kept informed of the status of its accounts. Our dedicated staff is available to take payments from delinquent owners over the phone throughout the workday. We also accept online payments 24/7 via our website.
McCabe, Trotter & Beverly also understands that a community association’s governing documents are not one size fits all, but must be tailored to the specific community. Our attorneys are experienced in formulating and amending Master Deeds, Declarations of Covenants, Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations. Our Firm can assist in either interpreting and modifying a community’s current documents or drafting new documents.
In addition to collections and governing documents services, McCabe, Trotter & Beverly assists clients as general counsel at meetings, during contract negotiations, and regarding budgetary and fiscal matters. Our Firm also provides guidance during turnover from developer control. Moreover, we strive to keep our clients updated on changes in law and recent court rulings to help them avoid liability down the road. Should a matter proceed to litigation, we are also experienced in representing community associations in covenant enforcement actions and defense of Fair Housing claims. Our practiced trial lawyers and professional staff works with the association to protect its best interests and maintain open channels of communication.
