With a focus on the complex areas of community associations law (Condo and HOA), Jonathan’s clients turn to him for his experience. He represents associations in general corporate matters, including providing legal opinions, overseeing meetings and elections and document review and amendments.   With respect to litigation, he represents associations in collection of assessments enforcement of covenants to complex multi-party construction litigation and defense of an association’s officers and directors. The foundation of his practice stems from the fact he is president of his own homeowners association and he can relate to the issues his clients are facing.
