    The Greater Williamsburg area is an exciting place to live and work, especially because of the large number of entrepreneurs who have built businesses from the ground up. These entrepreneurs have taken their passion and made it their profession. Many of us want to take that step. Before you begin, you need to think of the type of business entity you want to form. Our attorneys have extensive business experience, from small one-person companies to publicly traded major corporations. Our attorneys are among the leaders in Virginia in the representation of Common Interest Communities. These communities are generally referred to as "homeowners associations," or "HOAs," and "condominium associations." In the greater Williamsburg area alone, we provide legal assistance to nearly 100 associations. Our attorneys have successfully prosecuted and defended a wide array of civil disputes involving community association covenant enforcement, commercial transactions, construction disputes, contracts, real estate matters, boundary line and easement disputes, employment matters, antitrust litigation, copyright violations, administrative proceedings, and estate issues. Real Estate law encompasses a wide variety of matters, and our attorneys have vast experience to assist you. Whether you need assistance with a commercial or residential closing, or you have questions relating to residential or commercial leasing, we provide experienced advice and counsel to our clients. Zoning law can be a complicated maze of statutes and ordinances. We have ample experience in successful applications for rezoning, variance, and special use permit requests. Finally, commercial and residential construction provide special challenges with respect to financing issues and the construction process. We serve as counsel to various financial institutions.

Recap of the 2011 Virginia Leadership Retreat

The 2011 Virginia Leadership Retreat was held this past weekend at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia.  The Virginia Leadership Retreat is the leading educational and networking forum for community association professionals in Virginia. This was the 3rd annual retreat and it was a great success!  The attorneys at Tarley Robinson, PLC participated in many events at the Retreat. From teaching to sponsoring to working at the VLR, our attorneys devoted dozens of hours to this event.

Susan Tarley serves as a member of the Virginia Leadership Retreat Committee.  The Committee is comprised of members of the Washington Metro, Central Virginia and Southeastern Virginia Chapters of the Community Associations Institute.  Susan is a representative of the Central Virginia Chapter, serving on the Board of Directors as well as the Virginia Legislative Action Committee.

Both John Tarley and Susan Tarley presented educational sessions that provided community association managers with their annual continuing education credits.  Susan’s topic was Protecting Confidentiality:  The Attorney Client Privilege.  The importance and purpose of the privilege for homeowner and condominium associations was discussed along with best practice tips to protect the privilege. We have blogged many times on this important topic.

John’s area of expertise in social media provided the backdrop for his presentation on how to use social media, including Facebook, Twitter and blogging to help move management companies to the forefront in the industry. John provided a roadmap on how to implement social media into a business, and related the benefits that gained as a leading professional in the field.

The keynote speaker was one of Williamsburg’s own Deborah Reeser McKinnon who presented an inspiring session on leadership.

John, Susan and Philip Chapman, also attended the educational forums and retreat events.  The event includes many industry professionals. We find that sharing information and socializing with colleagues is a tremendous learning experience, helping us provide even better service for our clients. Pictures will follow!
