Community Association Counsel

Community Association Counsel Epsten Grinnell & Howell is recognized as one of Southern California’s most experienced community association law firms. For more than 25 years we have served the legal needs of more than 4,000 community associations.

Our expertise encompasses the entire discipline of community association law. Many of our attorneys are recognized as individual leaders in the field through published works, legislative activities on behalf of the community association industry, and industry group leadership positions. We are active members of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and the California Association of Community Managers (CACM). Several of our attorneys have been inducted into the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers.

Attorneys assigned to counsel your association become an integral part of your professional team. They assist the Board and management in understanding their responsibilities, preparing for meetings, answering questions about CC&Rs, legal documents and applicable laws, making recommendations on enforcing the association’s rules, negotiating contracts for provision of services, and navigating litigation.

Our firm supplements its legal advisory relationship with an ongoing program of communications highlighting developments in community association law. Epsten Grinnell & Howell offers educational symposia on changes in case law and legislation, publishes client advisories on current topics, and makes available on this website an extensive library of educational and research materials that help Board members and community association managers keep up to date on the legal topics that affect them.
