HOA

The HOA practice group has many years of experience representing community association clients in general counsel, transactional, complex civil litigation and collection matters.

General Counsel Services

The HOA Practice Group at Davis Miles McGuire Gardner prides itself on having a small firm personality with large firm resources. We feel that a personal relationship with our clients is a key component to a successful business relationship. As such, we offer Associations our General Counsel Services on a matter-by-matter basis whether for governing document reviews and amendments, homeowner violations, attendance at Association meetings, litigation, etc. Our hourly rates are competitive in the industry with partners billing at $300 per hour, associates billing at $250 per hour, and support staff billing at $125 an hour.

As part of our General Counsel Services, we provide Associations, upon written request, quotes as to the amount of time and fees we believe each matter will require, and we do not undertake more than a preliminary review of a matter until receiving written approval from an Association to proceed.[1]

Collections Services

The HOA Practice Group focuses the majority of its collections efforts on its HOA Clients collecting on delinquent assessments, fines for violations, failures to pay special assessments, etc. Our Collections Services differ from many other law firms in that we advance the fees incurred to collect from delinquent homeowners. Associations are not responsible to pay our fees as the matter proceeds; we recover them directly from the delinquent homeowners. If we don’t collect, we don’t get paid. This approach has been very useful for our Association Clients, especially during difficult financial times.[2]

The Group’s aggressive Collections Services includes issuing preliminary demand letters, negotiations and settlement agreements, filing Justice Court and Superior Court lawsuits, garnishments, writs of execution, and lien foreclosures.

Contact us today at (480) 733-6800 for a confidential consultation.
