Sarasota, FL

As a Community Association Attorney our role is to advise and educate the board of directors on the applicable law and best approaches for governing the entire community.

When a board fully understands its duties, rights and options, it can manage the community in a manner so that potential problems and issues can be resolved quickly and cost effectively.

What makes for a good relationship between the board of directors and the attorney?

Communication between the board and the attorney is vital.  This communication can come through a community association manager, and/or a board designated contact person.  While the attorney knows the applicable provisions of the law, it is the owner and the manager who know the dynamics of the community and the personalities of the owners.  This community insight usually impacts the legal advice the attorney provides, and is therefore essential for implementing the best legal solutions.
