Attorneys Serving HOA and POA Clients in Virginia

Fairfax law firm focused on providing legal advice to Boards of Directors across Virginia

Common interest communities, like homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and property owners’ associations (POAs), are unique small businesses run by a Board of Directors elected by its members to govern their respective communities. These Boards owe a fiduciary duty to their associations and our firm provides legal advice they can rely on when making decisions that could have legal consequences. While day-to-day management is typically delegated to an association employee or a common interest community manager, having a lawyer available to help spot potential legal issues and address them before they become a problem is essential to ensuring the association serves the best interests of its members.

Law Office of William A. Marr, Jr. serves as the association’s general legal and corporate counsel, providing services such as rule and covenant enforcement and drafting and assessment collection.  We strive to help Boards of Directors identify and resolve potential issues before they break, saving communities’ time, money, and emotional energy. The Law Office of William A. Marr, Jr. also remains intimately connected to the constantly changing laws affecting HOAs and POAs in Virginia and will keep you informed regarding any change that might affect your community.
