Appleton Reiss, PLLC was founded in 2018 to provide innovative, effective, and affordable legal services to community associations and other entities. Our lawyers have decades of experience providing legal advice and practical solutions for community associations. We represent homeowners associations, condominium associations, community development districts, special taxing districts, developers, and individuals throughout Florida. Our lawyers have experience drafting, amending and interpreting governing documents, implementing strategies for collecting past due assessments, minimizing delinquencies, and avoiding and resolving non-monetary violations, addressing contract and vendor issues, resolving disputes with developers, and helping associations strategize, plan, and finance capital improvement projects and deferred maintenance expenditures. While we represent hundreds of associations of all sizes and needs throughout Florida, we strive to provide personal service and expedient advice to each and every client. Appleton Reiss, PLLC is one of few firms in Florida with experience representing community associations as well as community development districts and other special taxing districts which have begun to assume more of the responsibilities formerly delegated to homeowners associations. In addition, Appleton Reiss, PLLC is a full service law firm with experience handling transactional matters, litigation, first party insurance disputes, bankruptcy, collection and replevin matters.
In order to provide the best advice to our clients, we stay up to date on industry trends, legislative changes, and evolutions in the law affecting our clients. We share this information with our clients and their community association managers through daily representation in their legal and corporate matters and through free seminars. In addition to publishing periodic updates regarding changes in Chapters 718 and 720 and other Florida Statutes affecting our clients, we are approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation to provide a Board Certification Course for new and existing condominium and homeowners association board members. We host courses throughout the year at our office and other locations in the community for the benefit of existing and potential clients. Please contact us to find out when we will be hosting a course in your area. For all of your other legal needs and community association matters, please contact us today to find out how we can help you.
In addition to supporting the legal needs of community associations and other clients, we are also active in our community. We provide pro bono services, attend and participate in local bar associations, and support the community through donations and volunteer services.
