Wyse Kadish is delighted to announce that Amy Bilyeu was recently included in the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the field of Trust and Estate Law. Congratulations Amy!
At Wyse Kadish, we have represented homeowner associations since 1957. We have extensive experience with the particular laws which pertain to homeowner and condominium owner associations, but also other fields of law which are frequently involved in association affairs such as civil litigation, bankruptcy, real estate, corporations, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Fair Housing Act. We pride ourselves on quality service for all association needs. Among those services we most commonly provide are:
Bruce H. Orr has been in the practice of law since 1981. Bruce specializes in bankruptcy, creditor rights, and collections, issues which are important to associations. Bruce’s experience is invaluable in traversing the minefield of bankruptcy and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Bruce has drafted amendments that protect associations’ right in bankruptcy situations.
Patrick T. Foran has practiced condominium and homeowner association law since 2009 and has worked with hundreds of community associations as they navigate issues ranging from governance and enforcement to assessment collection. Pat regularly provides counsel to boards of directors and regularly gives presentations to community associations and local community association trade groups.
C. Sarah Lappin collaborates with the firm’s community association practice, where she provides practical advice on all areas, excluding construction defect, that impact the community. Over the years Sarah has focused on the collection of unpaid homeowner assessments for communities and takes a practical approach in advising her clients in how much they should spend to recoup the money they are owed. Sarah has helped communities collect millions of dollars in delinquent dues throughout her career.
Karma Prajzler counsels community associations on matters concerning general HOA law, the enforcement of governing documents, and the collection of delinquent assessments.

Dennis provides a rapid response to clients’ day-to-day needs based on 17 years of working on association related issues. Dennis provides support to attorneys on enforcement and collection cases.
