John Morris Presents on Divisiveness at 2019 National HOA Law Conference in New Orleans
John Morris, a Utah homeowners association lawyer, was selected to be one of the presenters for the CCAL national HOA law seminar in New Orleans. This seminar was attended by more than 400 HOA lawyers from around the country. They presented on how to deal with divisiveness and conflict in HOAs. This very interesting issue is at the forefront of the national political debate and is a commonly encountered problem in community associations around the country and in Utah. The topic included information and practical advice for dealing with board member verses board member disputes, board member verses owner disputes, HOA verses board member disputes, and other common types of disputes in HOAs. The presentation included a careful review of the ethical rules lawyers must deal with representing parties in these disputes, along with practical advice for minimizing, deescalating, and resolving these disputes. Morris Sperry lawyers and the Morris Sperry HOA law firm are committed to resolving disputes in condominium associations, PUDs, townhomes, and other community associations as quickly, efficiently, and amicably as possible. This is why John has completed mediation training and frequently suggest alternatives for resolving disputes other than litigation. Attorneys who focus in HOA law, like the attorneys at Morris Sperry, understand the importance of understanding, managing, and harnessing the benefits of different opinions in homeowners associations.
