Mr. Suhar practiced law in Maryland for almost 10 years exclusively in the area of community association law. He has developed extensive experience in providing general legal representation and debt collection services for condominiums and homeowners associations across the State of Maryland. This experience includes debt collection, covenants enforcement, bankruptcy, foreclosure, corporate law, fair housing laws and civil litigation. Mr. Suhar specializes in providing community associations with a review and analysis of their governing documents, relevant statutes, and case law necessary for the association's efficient operation and for keeping property values high.

Mr. Suhar is able to provide a full range of legal services to condominiums and homeowners associations. He handles advising communities regarding compliance with laws governing non-stock corporations, and concerning compliance with local, state and federal statutes. This experience is combined with problem solving skills and a practical approach to helping Boards of Directors and Community Managers deal with the challenges which face community associations today.

Mr. Suhar has practiced regularly in both the District and Circuit Courts of Maryland. He has successfully handled numerous covenants enforcement cases in the Circuit Court, and has argued in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.
