Texas Monthly Article on HOA's and one of my clients

Reporter Jay Root has written a long exposé of the HOA industrial complex. He focuses on Texas State Senator John Carona, who heads up a large property management company that stands behind thousands of HOA's. The lead-in and conclusion feature one of my clients, a homeowner getting foreclosed on by the Brookfield HOA in Pflugerville, Texas for bogus fines that spiraled into thousands of dollars of handling charges and attorney's fees. My client, Shawn Riggs, got mad and hired me, and then Jay Root got hold of the story. The main focus of the article is about Senator Carona's empire building in the HOA field while serving in the Texas Legislature. The HOA abuse featured in the article doesn't surprise me, but the machinations behind the scenes does. I strongly recommend that anyone planning to buy into an HOA community read this article.
