Recovery For Rental Property Damages Webinar

Discovering property damage can lead to extensive repairs. For apartment owners who find themselves facing expensive repairs, even with 10-50 year old buildings, there may be another option. Owners often can look to their own first-party insurance as a means for recovery. Jim Guse, Partner at Barker Martin, P.S., is a leader in the firm’s insurance coverage practice group and will be sharing key strategies owners and managers can use to help offset the high cost of building repairs.

Onward and Upward!

We are pleased to announce that Barker Martin's Portland office is now fully up and running at its new space downtown in the Crown Plaza Building, 1500 SW First Avenue, Suite 980. The office is in a quieter location just off Naito Parkway in the southern part of downtown and offers much easier and faster access for clients and business partners.  The parking is also much better and more accommodating. For those that still can't make it to the office in person, we've included technology upgrades in our build-out that will allow us to conveniently connect remotely for meetings and education.

We're proud of the new office and encourage you to drop by to check it out and take a tour.

Welcome Lindsey!

Dan Zimberoff Admitted to College of Community Association Lawyers

Seattle, WA, December 1, 2015 – Daniel Zimberoff of Barker Martin, P.S. has been granted membership in the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL)- one of fewer than 150 attorneys nationwide to be admitted to the prestigious organization. Fellows of the College are among the most respected community association attorneys in the country.

CCAL was established in 1993 by Community Associations Institute (CAI), with membership consisting of attorneys who have distinguished themselves through contributions to the evolution and practice of community association law. CCAL fellows are also recognized for committing themselves to high standards of professional and ethical conduct.

Zimberoff, an experienced trial attorney, has taken over 60 trials to verdict. He began his legal career working for an insurance defense firm and gained invaluable experience in how insurers defend cases.  In 1999, he switched sides of the “v.” and began representing plaintiffs. In addition to civil litigation, he worked as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for two years, where he handled all aspects of felony, misdemeanor and appellate criminal cases.  Dan has been with Barker Martin for over a decade. Although initially focused exclusively on condominium construction defect claims in Washington, Barker Martin has evolved into a full-service litigation and association general counsel firm.

CCAL provides a forum for the exchange of information among experienced legal professionals working for the advancement of community association governance. Its goals include promoting high standards of professional and ethical responsibility, improving and advancing community association law and practice, and facilitating the development of educational materials and programming pertaining to legal issues. CAI is a national membership organization dedicated to helping homeowner and condominium associations meet the expectations of their residents. The organization accomplishes this mission by providing information, tools and resources to homeowner volunteer leaders and community managers who govern and manage common- interest communities. By helping its members learn, excel and achieve, CAI strengthens the governance and management of community associations throughout the country, making them better places to live.

More than 62 million Americans live in an estimated 325,000 homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities.

Big Expectations for Barker Martin's Collections Program

Seattle, WA– Seattle-based litigation and homeowner association Law Firm, Barker Martin, is elated to announce its recent success in collecting over $42,000 for one of the Associations that it represents.

Barker Martin’s Collection Program is experiencing outstanding results and the Program is booming. In the last half of the year, Barker Martin has successfully collected over $280,000 for its clients, marking the passing of a noteworthy threshold. With the growth of their Portland Office, the wonderful reviews and feedback from clients and the general success of the program, the firm expects those numbers to increase exponentially.

The Collection Program’s success can be attributed to several factors; a dedication to provide unparalleled results, exceptional ethical principles, and expert counsel and advice.  Barker Martin expects to expand its department in the future, and looks forward to continuing to provide the highest quality of Collection services to its clients.

About Barker Martin Collections Program

Barker Martin introduced their Collections Program several years ago, at the request of their clients who were experiencing difficulty in this department. The program includes a multi-faceted approach to collections, from the initial review of an Association’s Governing Documents to accurate and efficient Collection assessments. Barker Martin also provides a 24/7 reporting service available to all clients who are interested in seeing the progress of their collections matter. By simply logging in to the client interface, one can access current status updates.

While all of the services and amenities that are offered sound pricey, Barker Martin has gone one step further, by developing several flat fee options, to encourage settlement and reconciliation for debtors. To learn more, please visit www.barkermartin.com.
