  • COMMERCIAL CIDS

    COMMERCIAL CIDS

    Silldorf Law, LLP represents commercial and industrial common interest developments (commercial CIDs) across Southern California in all facets of association law, including general counsel, civil litigation, construction defect litigation, and more.

    When it comes to the law, commercial CIDs operate as a hybrid between a standard commercial building and a homeowners association, with both association and commercial laws applying simultaneously. While HOA associations are governed by the Davis-Stirling Act, commercial associations are governed by a similar Act that includes some but not all of the provisions of Davis-Stirling Act.

    Silldorf Law, LLP is equipped to competently handle your commercial CIDs' needs. Our best-in-class attorneys are well versed in not only community association law, but also in commercial and business law. This diverse experience ensures that our lawyers are always ready to advise and represent your association successfully in a variety of situations requiring immediate legal counsel, whether the situation relates to association law or to business or commercial law.

    We work closely with the boards and property managers to provide the tools, education, and answers needed to maintain stable developments and protect the association's interests.

  • CIVIL LITIGATION

    CIVIL LITIGATION

    "It is best to anticipate the unexpected early on and hope that you never have to face problems in your association, but in the event you do face issues, you will be armed and ready." -Managing Partner, Howard Silldorf

    Our philosophy at Silldorf Law, LLP is that a proactive approach to legal services is imperative. Our San Diego lawyers strive to anticipate and prevent potential liability through calculated legal guidance on your association matters by taking control of potential problems and initiating solutions. We aim to reduce the amount of litigation and liability by detecting future challenges and effectively preparing to tackle them.

    When litigation does arise, our team of experienced attorneys at Silldorf Law, LLP is ready to represent your association's interests effectively and aggressively. We have represented master associations in complex civil disputes as both plaintiff and defendant. Our law firm has successfully defended multi-million dollar breach of contract claims, fraud claims, employee disputes, and neighbor-to-neighbor conflicts where the association was named, whether rightly or not.

    We are trial attorneys. AtSilldorf Law, LLP, our attorneys are willing to go the distance. In every instance, our goal remains the same: provide an aggressive, cost-effective litigation strategy individually tailored to each client's goals and needs.

  • AMEND AND ENFORCE GOVERNING DOCUMENTS

    AMEND AND ENFORCE GOVERNING DOCUMENTS

    The association's governing documents set the framework for success. Associations usually have governing documents which include: Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's), Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, Rules & Regulations, and Architectural Guidelines. Each document serves its own purpose in maintaining a prosperous community, and it is necessary to ensure that homeowners and board members alike have a complete understanding of these documents.

    Your team of attorneys at Silldorf & Levine will advise your board on the best practices in clarifying and enforcing association CC&Rs, Rules and Regulations and Architectural Guidelines. We will execute a thorough review of the governing documents and understand specific circumstances and needs of your association.

    Our San Diego lawyers are here to provide legal aid when your association finds it necessary to make changes to established documents. Whether new laws have invalidated current restrictions, the drafted restrictions are too vague to implement, or new problems not initially addressed by the governing documents arise, we can revise the provisions with the precision and care your association needs. With clear and concise governing documents, Silldorf Law, LLP will help guide your association to continued growth and success.
