Condo | HOA Lawyers


Darcy Mehling Good is the Legal Services Chair and Assessment Recovery Department Director.  Darcy calls upon her personal experiences from six years of being a condominium owner/resident and board secretary to better understand and address the challenges faced by community associations. She focuses her practice on association operations, including annual meetings, drafting amendments, developing and reviewing association rules to ensure compliance with the governing documents and any state and federal laws, especially fair housing laws, and reviewing contracts. Additionally, Darcy is the partner in charge of all aspects of the assessment recovery work we do on behalf of our clients, particularly complicated foreclosures and bankruptcies, while maintaining procedures consistent with the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. Darcy has written a number of articles and spoken at many local, state and national conferences on operations and assessment recovery issues. Notably, she contributed “Whodunit?” the feature article in Common Ground, a national publication and presented at a CAI National Conference in Orlando, Florida on how to “Properly Assess to Protect your Assets.” Darcy was a co-presenter at a CAI National Law Seminar in Tucson, Arizona, on the numerous and costly losses associations have experienced from their funds being embezzled and the steps that board should take to protect the association’s funds. With this issue being so rampant, the presentation, “Keep Fraud’s Ugly Head Out of Your Community Association,” has been cited in other works nationally and as far away as Australia.   In 2013, Darcy was accepted into the prestigious and national College of Community Association Lawyers.
