"I have known Rick and Marc for over 20 years and I'm excited that they have combined forces. I cannot imagine a problem that faces the HOA industry that they have not addressed and mastered."
Sandy Denton, General Manager of Sienna Plantation Residential Association
"Chaparral Management Company, AAMC® community association managers and portfolio of community associations appreciate the RMWBH treatment we receive daily. Our community association managers are treated with professionalism, responsiveness, and the accessibility we demand in our fast-paced work environment. Our portfolio of community associations are treated with respect and consideration of the association dollar; whether a collection or compliance issue, RMWBH guides the association with reasonable, results-oriented recommendations and actions. We appreciate the ability to work with RMWBH for our communities."
Pamela Bailey, President of Chaparral Management Company, Inc.
"The Law Office of RMWBH has proven time and time again to be a firm that I can trust and depend on. Over the years, they have given professional guidance to the boards of the associations we manage and to the associates of FirstService Residential. We have benefited from their expertise, which included training in deed restriction compliance, litigation and labor and employment law. It is very easy to identify why they have established a leading reputation in the HOA industry and I look forward to our continued working relationship."
Rolando Coronado, Former President of FirstService Residential
"We've worked with a number of law firms over the years but regularly seek out RMWBH Law to assist our communities. They're thorough and responsive. And, in the hopefully unlikely event you're involved in litigation, it's good to have RMWBH at your side!"
Alex Taylor, III, Division Director, FirstService Residential
"For years, we have relied on Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC to provide us legal guidance on many of the unique and challenging issues facing master-planned communities in Texas."
Doug Goff, COO of Johnson Development Corp.
"I have had the privilege of working on commercial real estate transactions in Fort Bend County for over two decades. I learned long ago the importance of referring service providers to my clients that not only know their craft, but more importantly, know Fort Bend County. For legal matters, no one knows Fort Bend commercial real estate better than Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC in Sugar Land. I use them often and give them my highest recommendation!"
Kolbe Curtice, Colliers International
"Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC has been our "go to" advisory law firm for nearly two decades. They have actively helped us learn to practice our business in a defensive legal mode where we ask questions before we do something to get us into trouble. Not once have they failed to have the person or the answers to quickly avoid more legal entanglements and to swiftly resolve potential issues."
Richard Bludworth, CEO of Bludworth Marine, LLC
"I can't speak highly enough of Amy VanHoose and Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC. Our HOA was involved in a very difficult lawsuit and Amy was able to steer us though troubled waters and she worked very hard to resolve the lawsuit to everyone's satisfaction."
Sandy Lauder, Past President of Fairways of Sherrill Park HOA
"Amy and her team did a great job in my defense. They were on top of everything and always kept me informed. Victory was ours thanks to them!"
Terri Sigmund, SCS Management
"Ms. Amy VanHoose and her team recently represented our homeowner association in litigation with a property owner involving a deed restriction violation. Amy and her team members did an outstanding job representing us. They all quickly grasped the situation, displayed a superior understanding of Texas Law, and used all of this to present our position in a very compelling manner. They did an excellent job advising and working with our board of directors during mediation negotiations, and the issue was resolved in a beneficial manner for our HOA. I would highly recommend Amy and her excellent team to anyone needing legal representation in HOA issues."
John H. Shepherd, President of Seven Coves Association, Inc.
"I am currently and have been the President of an HOA for the past 6 years. Recently, during that time period, the HOA has had to obtain legal counsel. The board selected RMWBH to assist in the issue at hand. Amy VanHoose took the case and has led the board of the HOA through the process in the up-most professional manner. During that time, Amy has been above and beyond in comparison to any attorney of any legal firm that I have personally dealt with in the past. The professionalism and communication skills that are exemplified through RMWBH and Ms. VanHoose have gone beyond my personal and the board of the HOA's expectations."
Samuel E. Cress, D.D.S., President of The Retreat at Sovereign Shores Homeowners Association
"Four years ago, I was a member of a newly elected board of directors of an aging town home association with deferred maintenance, no reserve account, out of date governing documents, and facing a lawsuit with potentially dire financial repercussions.
Shareholder , Greg Godkin, successfully guided this board through contentious litigation and, with his expertise, we were able to reach an amicable resolution and focus on rebuilding our community.
Moving forward, the board determined we needed to retain a law firm that provided attorneys that specialize in HOA law, are current in Texas legislature changes, are ethical, and responsive in a timely manner.
For the past four years, RMWBH shareholder, Brady Ortego, and associate, Mark Rabe, have been integral resources for the board and, today, we find ourselves in a financially responsible and stable position. They have led us through the legal system and difficult corporate, collection, and compliance, decisions. They have protected us from unnecessary challenges, frivolous threats of litigation, and general queries that arise from members of a HOA association.
This firm and attorneys have our confidence, trust and recommendation."
Sandra Fuller Randol, President of BCHOA Board of Directors
"There is no one I trust more with the defense of our company in highly complex community association litigation than Amy and her team at RMWBH. Over nearly 10 years of working with her and her team there has never been a situation, no matter how obscure, that she couldn't quickly dive into and help us work through. I owe many hours of sleep and productivity back to Amy for all her work which has allowed us to focus on running a business instead of litigation."
Jason Delgado, Managing Partner of Rise Association Management Group
"Our employee benefit plan hired Gregg Weinberg and his firm to defend both the plan and our plan committee members in five different actions involving multiple plaintiffs, multiple defendants and multiple allegations in different courts throughout the United States, which were ongoing for over four years. The litigation was a real mess. Not only did Gregg and his team quickly wrap their arms around and successfully defend what was happening, Gregg also grasped the plaintiffs' counsels' real motivation. A court hearing that the plaintiffs' counsel scheduled to last twenty minutes would take over two full days to try and conclude. Throughout this entire ordeal Gregg’s perspective, practicality and sense of humor kept all of us going and allowed us the opportunity to successfully resolve the mess we found ourselves in."
Jon Cocks, Millennium Multiple Employer Welfare Benefit Plan
"RMWBH has kept us out of the courthouse and steered us to safer waters on frequent occasions. But when the chips are down and a fight is the requirement on our lawyers at RMWBH earnestly tackle the task at hand they are the real deal!"
Walt Coram, Chairman Synergy Holdings, Inc.
"My family has worked closely with Aaron Dobbs for nearly four years on two very complicated probate estates, trust litigation and a contested guardianship proceeding. This was a very emotional time for all of us. I don’t know how we would have fared without Aaron's compassion and integrity as a human being, but his skills as a superb attorney are what guided us to reach our ultimate goals. We valued Aaron's attention to detail, perseverance, communication skills, and his clear, logical, and creative thinking. He made us feel like we were a priority in his busy day, and I rarely waited more than a few hours for an answer to my emails. During a very trying time, he even responded on the weekend! There is no one I would trust more than Aaron Dobbs to handle any of my legal concerns."
"Aaron's range of experience and excellent credentials is demonstrated through his competency and willingness to serve his clients and protect their best interests."
"Kelley Bentley helped my husband and me with our estate planning as well as setting up a Special Needs Trust for my son. I was very impressed with Kelley's knowledge of both and the laws that regulate them. I had already done a lot of Internet research on both subjects and felt I knew just enough to recognize that what she was recommending made sense. My husband and I both sleep better at night knowing that our wishes are written in stone and will be honored when we pass. Kelley is very professional and is genuinely concerned about us personally and advises us based on our individual needs and wishes. Kelley stays focused during meetings, this can be important especially if there is an hourly charge. Most of our communication is done by email and her responses are timely. We feel that choosing Kelley to advise us on our Estate Planning was a good decision and look forward to working with her on future needs if they arise. We also feel that she will provide the same individualized service to our estate executor and the trustee for my son's Special Needs Trust when the time comes."
"Gregg Weinberg and Frank Carroll took on one of the biggest oil service giants for my company. They never blinked, never wavered, and forced the other side to understand that we were not going to be denied our recovery. They obtained a favorable resolution of my case in arbitration and I would recommend them to anyone who has ever been treated poorly by a major."
Kevin (Xianli) Kong, President Sinocal Petroleum Technologies, Inc.
"The Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey firm has provided superb services to our communities and Board members. This firm performs great due diligence on unique case scenarios in order to handle such matters with great accuracy and efficiency. Our Board and community members feel we have the best legal counsel services specific to HOA matters in town."
Alberto Castanon, Property Manager, Management Partners, LLC.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Marc Markel and Clinton Brown with the law firm of Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey over the past several years of my community association management career in Austin, Texas. I can state without hesitation they are knowledgeable professionals who make the job of community association managers and volunteer board members that much easier. Not only do they possess intricate knowledge of the laws that govern the industry, they are quick to respond to all requests when that knowledge is called upon. Even beyond their 9-5 responsibilities, they are both very giving of their time and talents, participating in educational events to help others succeed in their roles as well. Knowledgeable, responsive, generous and reasonable would be four words I would use to succinctly summarize my experiences with Marc, Clinton, and their law firm overall."
Mary Arnold, CMCA® AMS®
"RMWBH provides our mutual clients the highest level of service. All of the attorneys have knowledge of the legal and practical challenges faced by homeowner associations and condominium regimes. Clint Brown in particular is excellent in explaining the complexities of the law in a clear and straightforward manner. He is always available and ready to assist with any issue that comes up. He has earned the trust of many of our mutual clients. His team is very responsive to all our needs."
Maryellen Romich, National Director, Collection Services Group, CiraConnect, LLC
"I have had the pleasure of working with Clint Brown and Brady Ortego with several of my communities. Their years of experience enable them to provide thoughtful, thorough, and, most importantly, practical legal advice regarding a wide variety of issues. They listen carefully to client questions and comments and they respond quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issue. I have worked with RMWBH for almost 4 years and have never been disappointed in any aspect of their work. I would recommend this firm to anyone who needs to be able to trust the advice you are given and to attend any Board meeting where their expertise is needed."
Jessica M. Smith, Association Manager, SCS Management
"The RMWBH team has continued to impress over the five year span we have been associated. Founding members like Marc Markel consistently set the bar high for client service. Shareholder Brady Ortego, and associates Mark Rabe and Clint Brown ethically and calmly lead HOA’s through the legal system and guide those same HOA’s through tough collection and compliance decisions. Staff, reception, paralegals are all knowledgeable and easy to work with."
Dawn Tomaschefsky, Patriot HOA Management, LLC

As part of this association, Terlingua Ranch operates a hotel, pool, café, private airstrip, water supply, and maintains over 1,100 miles of gravel roads.
RMWBH Law Firm’s attorney Brady Ortego has worked closely with POATRI and has provided exceptional guidance on resolving legal issues related to personnel, property owner rights and services, and annual property owner assessment collections. Mr. Ortego has met with employees and board members and made an on-site visit to better understand the unique situations faced by POATRI. He has read and researched hundreds of historical documents to recommend resolutions to a variety of complex legal issues.
Mr. Ortego and the RMWBH Law Firm are professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with."

"RMWBH is a great firm law. They are always professional, knowledgeable, timely and provide great legal counsel to the associations. I have a great working relationship with Brady, Sipra, Rick, Eric, and their extended team(s). It’s always a pleasure working with them. I am always impressed with their service and performance!"
Thomasene Smith, Community Manager, FirstService Residential, Kingwood office
"My partners and I have been doing business with RMWBH for around 18 years now. Marc Markel set up our holding company in 1999. We now have grown to a medium-sized company that employs around 75 people here in the Houston area, manufacturing equipment for both power and petro-chemical plants in North America. Through the years we have needed Marc Markel, and now Justin Markel, to assist us in many legal matters. They have helped us structure our company from day one, and continue to be there for all issues that arise. From helping us with real estate matters to lawsuits, RMWBH has done our company right. Their quick response along with their knowledgeable staff has always been a valued service to us. Even times where we needed help outside of Justin’s expertise, they found us the best person and worked together with all involved as a team. We even use RMWBH to work with our accountant to keep us updated with all our business and financial needs. Having RMWBH on our team really does give us the time and satisfaction to focus on our business."
Dale Winter, Vice President of Texco Holding Company, Sandelius Instruments, Inc., and TexCo Trim, Inc.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Gregg Weinberg and the rest of the fiduciary litigation team at RMWBH. Not only do they know the rules, but they give practical advice that helps a fiduciary to avoid most of the land mines dotting the financial landscape. Sound advice in the fiduciary arena is crucial to minimizing potential losses through litigation. I highly endorse the firm and suggest that if you are a fiduciary and haven’t hired them, you need to do so now."
Ralph Rieger, CPA, CGMA, Rieger & Associates Ltd. Co.
I'd like to thank Clayton Hearn and the entire Labor & Employment Team for their great work on the recent case my company had there in Texas. I appreciate how thoroughly they worked, how frank and clear they were in their communications, as well as being so prompt. Most importantly, I truly value how they not only provided the legal guidance I needed, but listened to the business side of my company. Thank you so much for all your efforts and I’m so happy for the outcome.
Donna M. Hirsch, VP of Human Resources of Caveo Learning
"RMWBH assisted our company with a potential high-risk employment lawsuit. Thanks to the legal expertise of RMWBH, our company was able to resolve the matter, saving us a tremendous amount of money and time. The attorneys at RMWBH were very professional and responsive to all of our needs during the entire process and proved time and time again to be a firm that we can trust and depend on. We have benefited from their experience, which includes compliance, litigation, and assistance with management of labor and employment law. It has been very comforting to know that they are easily accessible in case we need them in the future. It is very easy to identify why they have established a leading reputation in the Employment Law industry."
Robertta Sharp, Vice President of Operations of O.S. Interior Systems, Inc.
"I have found RMWBH to be professional and committed to us and our clients. I continue to be impressed with their follow-through, responsiveness, and overall business acumen."
