Small Association Avoids Large Judgment and Large Legal Bill
A 19 lot association was sued by a disgruntled homeowner for breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract and injunctive relief and THERE WAS NO INSURANCE coverage for the association. A week before a preliminary injunction hearing we were hired by the association and were able to avoid a preliminary injunction. This important win opened the door to a settlement where the upset owner paid a substantial portion of the fees incurred by the association. All of this occurred in less than 4 months! As a result of our fast, cost-efficient and favorable outcome, the Board President referred us to another association with pending litigation.
