Dear Board Members and Managers:


As we mentioned in previous newsletters, we have grown exponentially over the last few years, having added attorneys, paralegals and administrative staff to ensure that our clients receive a customized experience catered to their community’s specific needs. With that being said, we are excited to welcome a new senior associate attorney to our team, Lauri J. Corley, who will be handling a significant portion of our transactional work such as contract review and negotiation, legal opinion letters, document reviews, amendment drafting and more.


Lauri J. Corley has been practicing community association law in Maryland for over a decade.  Since graduating from the University of Baltimore School of Law with honors in 2006, Lauri has worked as an associate at a law firm located in Baltimore County concentrating her practice in community association law and general real estate and business matters. She represented both national and local developers and builders as well as provided counsel to management companies and boards of directors of community associations throughout Maryland, advising them on a variety of issues relating to common interest communities, including the formation, development and continuing governance of master planned communities, condominium regimes, homeowners’ associations, land condominiums and mixed-use projects. Lauri’s experience includes drafting of declarations, bylaws, articles of incorporation and rules and regulations as well as preparation of consumer disclosure materials in compliance with applicable Maryland law.  In addition, for post- development community associations, Lauri reviewed and interpreted existing community documents relative to clients’ rights and obligations, and prepared comprehensive amendments to the documents in accordance with the clients’ desires and needs as well as to ensure compliance with applicable law.  Lauri is a member of the Maryland State Bar Association, Section of Real Property, Planning and Zoning, the Maryland Building Industry Association, the Professional Women in Building Council and the Community Associations Institute. Lauri lives in Baltimore County with her Husband, daughter and son, and she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling. Please join me in welcoming Lauri to our great team!



Enclosed please also find a Special Client Letter for your review regarding Bankruptcy which was written by Gregory T. Fox, Esq. We hope that you will find this letter interesting and informative.


As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other attorneys here at Nagle & Zaller.
