We’ve completed an almost seamless transition to our new firm; and our new systems are now full steam ahead!

We want to thank our clients for all of your help and patience in this transition, and for your incredible loyalty.  We really are grateful.

We also want to thank our former firm, Nelligan O’Brien Payne, for the terrific help and cooperation they’ve provided throughout.

We’re also steadily (happily!) continuing our CondoLawNews blogs.  At present, much of our focus is on the coming licensing of condominium managers.  You can find our blogs on this site, and you can also subscribe to receive our blogs directly, as noted below.

Thanks so much to everyone who works with us and who follows us.   We’ll continue to do our very best.

Jim, Nancy and Christy
