Shareholders

We are proud to be one of the most experienced and qualified law firms providing legal expertise to community associations.  With offices in San Diego, Indian Wells and Temecula we serve associations throughout San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, Orange and Los Angeles counties.

Offering a comprehensive portfolio of services, our attorneys provide association corporate counsel, CC&Rs interpretation, legal advice on rule enforcement, assessment collection services, resolution of architectural disputes, insurance reviews, litigation of construction defect, construction law and other civil cases, and senior and fair housing counsel.

Community association attorneys play a number of roles in the success of a community association, serving as advisors, problem solvers, advocates, and educators. Every one of our attorneys is dedicated to the practice and study of the laws and regulations related to community associations in California. Several of our attorneys have been inducted into the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers, sponsored by the Community Associations Institute.
