About Our Law Firm

Rome & Associates, P.C., is a law firm representing homeowner associations and condominiums in the metro Atlanta area. We offer a full range of services from establishing covenants and by-laws to post-judgment collection recovery.

Community Association Representation
For over 20 years, Rome & Associates has focused on representing homeowners and condominium associations. Our experience covers diverse areas of legal understanding, which includes, analysis of governing documents, real property law, nonprofit corporation law, federal regulations, and fair housing claims.

Mediation of Community Association Disputes
Our goal To try and resolve an issue prior to litigation, an owner and the association can agree to attempt mediation. In some associations cases, the covenants will require mediation before an owner is allowed to go forward with suit against the association or is required prior to trial. Rome & Associates understand how helpful it is to have a mediator who can explain the possible liability of going forward with suit.

Assessment Collection

An annual budget is based on 100% participation, but unlike the federal government, an Association cannot print more money. We offer deferred payment of attorney fees for most collection services until the funds to pay for them are collected from the delinquent homeowner. This system allows communities to pursue delinquent assessments without depleting community funds in the process.

Legal Advice

We strive to achieve the highest possible value for our clients. Client communications and legal expertise work in concert to ensure that community associations maintain community trust and uphold community standards with efficiency and integrity. Attorney Michael Rome has practiced law for 40 years, and he has over 20 years experience in advising association boards regarding a wide range of legal issues.

Deferred Payment of Collection Fees

Although our attorney fees are incurred at the time of service, the bulk of the fees are not payable by the association until the funds are collected from the delinquent homeowner. In this way the burden for the attorney fees is effectively shifted from the homeowners who pay on time to the delinquent homeowners. The association does not have to throw good money after bad. We do not receive a portion of what is owed to the association for the delinquent assessments like ‘contingency fees’ charged by collection agencies. Instead the attorney fees are added to what the delinquent homeowner owes. Property managers and Board members are able to view the detailed status of legal collections online using our ReadyCOLLECT service. In addition, a variety of reports can be printed out directly from the online service.
