What They’re Saying

Since Attorney Ford assisted us with collection actions last year, we have remained delinquent free. We now have money in reserves! And because we enforce the rental restrictions, we were able to secure a $20k loan. This money can/will go towards addressing a few urgent items that we desperately need to address in our community. As I talk with many other owners in other communities, Hartford is doing quite well in comparison thanks to you.

On behalf of the Board of Directors at Kentucky Courts Condominium, let me congratulate you on your amazing legal victory over Capitol One Bank NA in DC Superior Court [in a dispute over title to a foreclosed unit]. Nice work indeed!

Judy CarrProperty Manager, Kriegsfeld Corporation

The Ford Law Firm did exceptional work on behalf of the Kings Court Condominium Association. Our community was facing numerous legal challenges but thanks to this phenomenal firm, we are bouncing back. Their professionalism and knowledge exceeded our expectations. They are officially our law firm.

Regina DixonHOA President, Kings Court Condominium

I highly recommend The Ford Law Firm for resolution of HOA/Condo law disputes. DC may have more attorneys per capita than any other State, but few specialize in DC HOA/Condo law. None that I contacted came even remotely close to matching the thoroughness with which the merits of my case were initially assessed. Based on this thoroughness alone, I retained The Ford Law Firm. Your outcome, based on the material facts of your case, may differ from mine. Notwithstanding, in my case, The Ford Law Firm’s attorneys indisputably outperformed my opponent’s lawyers. Bottom line: for DC HOA/Condo legal disputes, you’ll be hard pressed to find any law firm, at any price, that outperforms The Ford Law Firm.

Ms. Ford is a lawyer with integrity. She really cares about her clients and will work hard for you. She is responsive, accessible and honest. Her staff is always very professional, knowledgeable, and timely. I was treated with the utmost respect from each person at the firm. They are not your standard “act first, ask questions later” type of law firm. They will fight very hard to obtain a successful and fair outcome.
