“When it comes to practicing law, my philosophy is to listen intensely, tailor solutions carefully, advocate fearlessly, and use every opportunity to advance my client’s understanding of the law and how it applies to their circumstances.”

Ms. Lord’s practice is focused on community association law, offering comprehensive legal services to condominiums, homeowners’ associations, and cooperatives. Her expertise
encompasses drafting, amending, and interpreting governing documents and statutes, ensuring her clients are in full compliance with current laws. She also provides strategic advice to community association boards on governance, legal updates, contract administration and negotiations, and handling violations effectively.

With a background as a community association manager, Ms. Lord brings a unique perspective to her legal practice. Her hands-on experience managing various community associations has equipped her with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by both members and directors. This insight into community governance allows her to develop practical, tailored solutions that address immediate concerns while promoting long-term stability and harmony within associations.

“My greatest professional accomplishment occurred the day I took my oath as an attorney. I will always remember the awe I felt, and the sense of responsibility to others to become the best I could be and give my best at all times.”
