Barker Martin

Association General Counsel

Because representing community associations is what we do every day, our general counsel services are directly responsive to our clients’ needs.  Like most corporations, associations contract with vendors, prepare budgets, run meetings, set reserves, manage revenue, and elect officers and directors.  But volunteer boards and community managers of associations also deal with unique issues such as owner conflicts, parking disputes, building maintenance and enforcement of governing documents.

As association general counsel, Barker Martin helps associations navigate these wide-ranging issues. And while all of our attorneys provide general counsel advice, we have several attorneys dedicated solely to this area of practice.  Our attorneys are well versed in the intricacies of association law because that is what they do day in and day out.  We remain at the forefront of the industry, regularly speaking at association industry seminars, legal seminars and committee meetings and our attorneys are often asked to give input to the legislature to improve the laws that affect community associations.

Our dedication to this area of the law means our attorneys are uniquely qualified to provide clients with responsive, contemporary advice and clear direction.
