Safeguarding HOA And Condominium Association Interests
Associations formed to serve homeowners or condominium owners are created to protect residents and safeguard their interests. However, the rules that these associations create to govern themselves can spark conflict between the association itself, its board of directors and individual property owners. Proactive condo associations and HOAs often hire real estate attorneys to help them navigate their legal matters.
The attorneys of Dornish Law Offices, PC, based in Wexford, have served as counsel for more than 100 condominium and homeowners associations, boards of directors and management agents. We have also represented the interests of individual homeowners. This portfolio of representation enables us to examine property transactions, negotiate settlements or successfully litigate disputes and advise clients on avenues to preventing future conflicts.
Guidance On Day-To-Day Association Operations
Often, legal trouble can be avoided by having an attorney review and advise your association on their daily activities. Some of the services our attorneys can provide include the following:
- Reviewing and revising formation documents
- Drafting or reviewing governing documents

Beyond our own direct service provision to Pennsylvania condo associations and HOAs, we also retain a network of local counsel to provide insight and assistance to organizations in areas where knowledge of the nearby courts and municipal codes is essential.
