Quinn A. Sperry

Quinn is one of Morris Sperry’s founding members. His legal practice focuses on representing homeowners associations, but he also represents individual owners to defend and exercise their rights within their community association. When representing homeowners associations, Quinn acts as general counsel in advising the association's governing board on how to comply with and enforce their governing provisions in compliance with applicable federal and state statutes, the association’s own governing documents, and in the best interests of the community. As a member of his local city council and other community boards, Quinn understands what it is like for members of associations’ governing boards to make decisions that affect their neighbors, and he is cognizant of such issues when advising Morris Sperry’s clients on governance issues. He often drafts amendments to associations’ governing documents and opinion letters to assist associations in understanding how certain legal provisions apply to a specific association’s situation.  

Quinn is an experienced litigator. Early on in his career, he litigated cases involving a variety of general and bankruptcy law issues while representing two Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees. His litigation efforts are now dedicated to matters involving community association law, which benefits Morris Sperry’s clients as he is more knowledgeable on community association issues than most general practitioners who often represent opposing parties. Quinn assisted in a recent trial in which Morris Sperry obtained a fifteen million dollar verdict.  

Quinn heads up the Morris Sperry collections team and brings tremendous depth in community association collection issues, including situations where owners file for bankruptcy relief. He has entered appearances in hundreds of bankruptcy cases.

Quinn currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Utah Chapter of Community Associations Institute, an organization dedicated to improving community associations through educational and leadership efforts. As a member of this organization, he frequently offers instruction at community events and writes educational articles on issues affecting homeowners associations.

When Quinn is not working, he enjoys coaching his children’s youth athletic teams.
