Laurie S. Poole, Esq. has been a community association law attorney with Peters & Freedman, L.L.P. since 1993. Laurie is a Fellow of CAI’s College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL). She received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her juris doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law where she was a member of the Law Review.

Experienced in all aspects of community association representation, Laurie’s practice emphasizes interpretation and enforcement of governing documents, governing document amendments, restatements and petitions brought under California Civil Code Section 4275. She is a frequent speaker at CAI events and has published numerous articles concerning legal issues for community associations. Actively involved with CAI, Laurie currently serves on the Board of Directors for CAI-San Diego and is on CCAL’s Amicus Review Committee.

 

Deon Stein is the owner of The Law Offices of Deon R. Stein in Sacramento.  He has represented residential and commercial community associations, other non-profit corporations, businesses, individuals and residential and commercial real estate developers throughout California since 1988.

Mr. Stein advises boards of directors in the day-to-day operational aspects of common interest development and corporate law such as the interpretation and enforcement of governing documents (including IDR and ADR/mediations), the formation, structure and function of architectural review and other committees, real estate and financial disclosures, reserve study and reserve fund requirements, assessments and assessment collections, voting and other corporate compliance matters, loan transactions, developer transition issues, and contract negotiation and administration.  He also has extensive experience in drafting major revisions of governing documents for post-developer community associations.

While representing developers and homebuilders for several years before focusing his practice exclusively on community associations, Mr. Stein worked extensively with the California Bureau of Real Estate (BRE) in the initial formation of new residential subdivisions.  As a result of this background, Mr. Stein brings a seasoned perspective to community association law, giving him a broad understanding of the forces behind the creation of common interest developments, including their budgets and reserves, the content of original governing documents, and the unique legal requirements that the BRE imposes on real estate developers and home builders.

Mr. Stein is actively involved with many community association industry organizations.  He is a member of the Teaching Faculty of the California Association of Community Managers (CACM) and has served on CACM’s Legal Advisory Steering Committee.  He is currently on the Board of Directors of the California North Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI-CNC).  He served as the Chapter’s President in 1998, its Secretary from 2011 to 2013, and its Treasurer from 2014 to 2015.  He is currently a member of the Chapter’s Legislative Support Committee.  He has served on the Board of Directors of the Executive Council of Home Owners (ECHO).  He belongs to and frequently speaks before various chapters of CAI, CACM, and ECHO.  He has authored articles on community association legislation and operations for CAI, CACM and ECHO.

Mr. Stein has also lectured on community association, non-profit corporation and common interest development issues for the State Bar of California, Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB), the California Association of Realtors (CAR), the Superior California Chapter of the Building Industry Association (BIA-SC) and the CalCPA Education Foundation.  He can often be heard on the radio as a guest contributor to The KFBK Real Estate Show on Sacramento’s AM1530/93.1FM.

Mr. Stein received his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco and his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California at San Diego.  He is the recipient of American Jurisprudence Awards in Bankruptcy Law and Federal Government Contracting Law.  In 1988, Mr. Stein was an extern for the late Honorable David N. Eagleson of the California Supreme Court.
