Lerch Early is pleased to welcome attorney Katherine (Katy) Baldino as an associate in the Community Associations practice.

Katy represents condominium associations and homeowners’ associations throughout Maryland, serving clients from the state’s coastal regions.

“Katy enhances our practice’s ability to serve not only Metro Washington DC but also Maryland’s Eastern and Western Shores,” said Ruth Katz, co-chair of the practice. “We’re thrilled to have her on board.”

Katy works with property managers and community associations on statutory and regulatory compliance issues, covenant enforcement, day-to-day operations, financial management and general governance matters. She is adept at drafting amendments to governing documents, policy resolutions and membership communications, reviewing and negotiating third-party contracts, attending association meetings and assisting in the collection of delinquent assessments.

Katy has particular experience advising clients on unique issues facing water privileged communities.

“Katy brings a high level of preparation and energy every day, and our clients are really going to enjoy working with her,” said Jeremy Tucker, co-chair of the Community Associations practice. “We’re looking forward to seeing her thrive on our team.”
