Association Legal Services


Welcome to our website. Our firm specializes in providing a full range of services to homeowner association clients.

With more than twenty-five years of homeowner association and construction law experience, our firm serves as general counsel to well over 200 associations throughout the extended Bay Area varying in size from as small as a two-unit condominium to as many as 6,000 homes in a planned development. We have several high-rise condominium clients, some with mixed use (both residential and commercial units). Our planned development clients range from townhouse party-wall style common interest developments to individual single family homes in a community.

Our clients appreciate direct attorney access balanced with cost savings of seasoned legal assistants. Our services range from providing advice on the day-to-day administration of association business to resolving multi-million dollar construction defect litigation and, if necessary, prosecuting or defending actions on behalf of volunteer boards. Typical services we routinely provide include:

Pragmatic Advice

Davis-Stirling and Other Statutory Compliance

Updating and Refining old Association Documents and Practices

Drafting and Implementing Rules and Policies

Governing Document Analysis

Reconstruction Planning, Financing and Contracts

Rule Enforcement

Mediation and Litigation

Updates in Statutes and Case Law


Our goal is to educate Directors on the myriad and ever-changing legal issues that confront community associations today. With this approach, we assist associations in becoming proactive, thereby minimizing potential problems. We are active in the CID industry, presenting at seminars and authoring articles, in an effort to further our goal of educating Directors. Although we are always problem solvers first, if necessary, we can aggressively defend the association and its volunteers.
