Community Association Attorneys

There is No Substitute for Experience

Swedelson Gottlieb is a full-service community association law firm that provides the highest quality legal counsel to condominium, townhouse, stock cooperative, and planned development homeowner associations (HOAs) throughout California. Since 1987, we have dedicated our firm to the complex and multi-disciplinary practice of community association law, and our attorneys have earned a reputation for expert advice, exemplary service, and outstanding results. Our clients appreciate that our counsel extends beyond the law -- we consider ourselves educators, problem solvers, corporate advisors, discussion facilitators, and advocates.

Legal services for community associations involve a hybrid of more conventional specialty areas including real estate, corporate, litigation, employment, construction, and insurance law. We use our wealth of experience in this field to advise our clients on the many challenges of association management, ranging from governing document enforcement to mold issues to collection strategies. We give our clients the tools and the answers so that they can provide the best possible leadership to the associations that trust them. For more than three decades, we have counseled a wide array of community associations, including:

  • Condominiums
  • Planned Developments
  • Stock Cooperatives
  • Communities with common area recreational facilities
  • High-rise and mixed-use associations
  • Sub and master associations
  • Age-restricted communities and senior communities

We invite you to visit our blog at which is regularly updated with important information on news, new legislation, significant cases, and industry trends to assist association board members and community managers in the effective governance of their communities.
