Get an Experienced Community Association Attorney at a Reasonable Rate!

At Timothy J. Sloan, P.A., we represent and defend numerous “community associations” throughout the Florida Panhandle, including condominiums, HOAs, cooperatives, and vacation and timeshare plans. We do NOT represent individuals in actions against those associations, but we do work with individuals when they raise issues with our community association clients. We are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for your association and are well-versed in every aspect of Florida community association law. Staying current on changing laws is very important to us, and we regularly pass that information along to our association clients so that they can stay informed on the laws pertaining to them. We have frequently litigated the Florida laws and statutes governing these areas and can advise you on how they affect your individual situation and needs.

Not every association can afford to pay $400 an hour or more for legal services from the big name firms, and we are pleased to offer our services at one of the most competitive rates in the Panhandle area. Please contact us for more information about our fees. Your association deserves to have a well experienced attorney with decades of experience handling community association law without  having to pass a special assessment just to pay your legal fees!

Our experience with condominiums, homeowners associations, timeshares and cooperatives allows us to provide a “full-service” package to our association clients. Whether your association needs general guidance, assistance dealing with the Florida Division of Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes, or needs an experienced litigator to resolve a legal dispute, Timothy J. Sloan, P.A. is ready and able to handle the task.
