Russell & Mallett, LLP was founded to provide prompt, personal and affordable legal services to our clients.    

         We prepare, interpret and amend governing documents, vendor and management contracts, design and construction repair specifications, association books, records and minutes, and we possess a thorough knowledge of the law affecting community associations. We provide practical advice which is easily understood by community association boards and their members.

         We have substantial experience in construction defect and general litigation affecting community associations.  This ranges from actions to enforce the Governing Documents and rules, to complex construction defect disputes and defending associations and directors from property damage and personal injury claims.  We have been involved with claims arising out of vendor contract disputes and have represented associations before various city, county and state agencies.  We can also assist the association with implementing major repairs with coordination of design professionals, contractors, manufacturers, association members and tenants.  

Since 1987, Larry Russell has represented community associations and their Boards of Directors in resolution of complex construction defect matters.  Our clients recover the funds to repair their projects together with a cohesive plan for repairs and reconstruction.  This approach is derived from the many years Larry Russell spent with Fluor Engineers & Constructors, Inc., working with teams of engineers and experts to build complex construction projects around the world.   

The firm is active in all organizations which assist homeowner associations, including Community Associations Institute, California Association of Community Managers, Council of Condominium Homeowners Associations and the Executive Council of Homeowners.  The firm has contributed numerous articles and publications to these organizations, and frequently lectures about issues concerning the community association industry.  

We keep our clients abreast of pending legislation affecting community associations, and provide up to the minute information concerning the status and hearing dates of this legislation and its impact on our homeowner association clients.
