Boston, MA Condominium Dispute Lawyer | Serving Clients in Newton, Wellesley, and Throughout Massachusetts
Are you involved in a condominium-related dispute? I represent clients in condominium disputes involving other owners and/or owners associations in matters such as:
- Quiet enjoyment and noise matters
- Common element use issues (such as those involving a common roof, driveway, or wall)
- Repair and maintenance matters
- Association governance and accounting matters
- Utility matters
- Alleged violations of covenants and declarations
- Matters involving liens, the collection of assessments, fines, and evictions
I represent both condominium owners and associations. In most cases, condominium disputes can, and should, be resolved without protracted litigation or trial.
My condominium dispute practice is focused on developing a strong case for my client, and then using the various avenues that might be available for reaching an acceptable resolution quickly, including negotiation, mediation, and (in some cases) arbitration. Building a strong case early prepares a useful platform for seeking a favorable outcome expeditiously.
In the event that an acceptable resolution cannot be reached, I represent clients vigorously at trial and seek for them a complete and full win from a jury.
I am now conducting arbitrations in disputes between unit owners and/or trustees of condominiums. These disputes are often required by the condominium documents to be resolved through arbitration.
The advantages of arbitration are that it is speedy, efficient and inexpensive. In most cases in which I serve as arbitrator, the parties are not represented by an attorney. A hearing can usually take place within a month of initial contact and decision can be issued within two weeks of the conclusion of the hearing. I offer discounted rates for arbitrations.
I initially contacted Alan to represent my rights and interests as a dissident condo board member at our annual owners meeting. At the meeting, an election dispute arose and I continued to work with Alan to fight for a fair and honest election process driven by owner welfare rather than board member agendas. Alan represented the rights of owners and fearlessly stood his ground. He was not afraid to challenge the opposing association attorneys. Alan courageously demanded accountability from opposing counsel and the condo association board they represented even if the demand raised questions of professional responsibility.
