As an attorney, Pamela is committed to professionalism and providing the highest-quality legal service, while being mindful of her clients’ needs and costs.

Pamela represents Florida property owners, business owners, homeowners and condominium associations, civic associations, and citizen organizations in matters related to their legal concerns regarding all aspects of real property. Pamela handles matters arising from competing property rights, and the intersection of property rights with land use and environmental regulation. 

In representing condominium and homeowners associations, Pamela recognizes that these are unique entities with characteristics and responsibilities resembling both small businesses and local governments. They are also highly regulated corporations operated by neighbors who share an interest in the success of their communities, the security of their families, and the preservation of their property rights. As a result, condominium and homeowners associations experience conflicts and difficulties that require skillful and reasonable management, together with a thorough understanding of the laws governing these entities. Recognizing this, Pamela assists her association clients to identify flexible and alternative ways to operate within the constraints of their governing documents and the law, to the benefit of their members and their community.
