Community Associations

The Partners at WCZ each have over twenty (20) years of experience in the Community Association arena and remain actively involved in the Community Association practice. WCZ brings to the area of community association law concerned counsel who understand the ongoing nature of community associations and who have sensitivity to their legal needs.  We bring these qualities to associations, together with the experience level needed to resolve problems that associations might confront without litigation, if possible, and through litigation, if necessary.
