Lyons Dougherty provides comprehensive representation to condominium and homeowner associations as well as homeowners throughout the greater Southeastern Pennsylvania region. The attorneys in our community association practice appreciate the difficult challenges associations face and are committed to finding legal solutions that make good business and economic sense.

Our firm has an in-depth understanding of the complex laws Pennsylvania condominium and homeowner associations are required to follow. This focused legal knowledge combined with our extensive industry experience makes our firm well-positioned to offer a broad range of legal services to association boards of directors and managers, including:

  • Formation of homeowner and condominium associations
  • Representation in connection with ongoing operational issues
  • Preparation, review and modification of bylaws, declarations and other association documents
  • Assessment collections
  • Covenant and rule enforcement
  • Representation in construction defect cases
  • Litigation, arbitration and mediation of disputes

We recognize that unresolved disputes can be expensive and time-consuming for our community association clients. When conflicts and issues arise we work closely with our clients to craft practical plans that resolve the problem in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Our lawyers are well-known throughout the legal and business communities for taking proactive and prudent measures to avoid costly litigation. However, when a satisfactory resolution cannot be reached and litigation becomes necessary, we are fully prepared to advocate for our association clients in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies.

Lyons Dougherty is dedicated to helping our condominium and homeowner association clients prevent and resolve their most challenging problems and disputes. Our team approach allows our clients to benefit from the broad knowledge and experience of attorneys working in all areas of our firm.
