Jeremy Tucker and Ruth Katz Speak on Demystifying Robert's Rules of Order for Community Association Boards
Community associations attorneys Jeremy Tucker and Ruth Katz recently gave a webinar on "Demystifying Robert's Rules of Order" for the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the Community Associations Institute. They explored how to make common ownership community meetings more effective by using shortcuts contained in Robert's Rules of Order and dispelling long, misguided notions as to what procedures must be followed.
They also provided helpful tips and tricks for addressing agendas, minutes, motions, voting and proxies.
Jeremy and Ruth help community association managers and boards throughout the Washington, DC area with general condominium, homeowners association and cooperative issues like document interpretation and amendments, as well as with litigation, dispute resolution and covenant enforcement. For more information about using Robert's Rules effectively, contact Jeremy at (301) 657-0157 or email@example.com or Ruth at (301) 657-0188 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gaining Physical Custody in Relocation Case
The mother of our client’s children planned to move away for a new job opportunity, taking the children with her. She had been the primary parent, so our client wished to gain sole physical custody of the children, allowing them to remain in the DC area.
Lerch Early argued before the court that the children would be best served to stay in this area with their father. We worked with key experts to demonstrate that a move to the new location would be detrimental to the children’s interests.
The judge awarded sole physical custody to our client, allowing the children to remain in the environment where they attended school and had friends.
