1. The Amount of Experience the Attorneys Have

Legal expertise is nothing without years of experience. The attorneys at Stevens & Goldwyn know this only too well. Real estate attorneys routinely encounter complexity when dealing with an association's legal needs. Having enough experience to anticipate complications before they arise is one of the reasons experience HOA attorneys Miami are highly sought after.

According to legal professional John Tarley, over the past 10 -15 years, the statutes and laws governing the regulation and management of community associations have become more specialized. Previously, many community associations hired a real estate attorney to represent their interests. Now, most HOA’s hire a well-rounded law firm with direct experience in representing associations. The attorney’s professional affiliations and involvement in the community association industry add to the qualifications of the attorney. Ask whether the attorney is a member of the Community Association Institute; whether the attorney teaches in the subject area; whether the attorney participates in the legislative process for laws affecting community associations; and whether the attorney attends continuing education classes for a community association practice. All of these factors are important because that attorney will be well versed in the current issues facing associations.
