Protecting Your Community’s Future

Schneider Buchel specializes in community association law, providing comprehensive legal services tailored to meet the unique needs of residential communities. Our dedicated team of attorneys brings a wealth of experience in navigating the complex landscape of HOA, co-op, and condominium law. However, we don’t stop there. At Schneider Buchel, we understand that our clients often require a broad spectrum of legal support. Beyond community association matters, our firm extends its reach to address a diverse range of legal concerns, from real estate law and litigation to appellate law and more! 


Our team specializes in representing Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and serving as their general counsel. Our HOA lawyers can handle the enforcement of HOA governing documents and ensuring compliance to avoid expensive lawsuits. Additionally, we provide defense against homeowner lawsuits related to HOA policies and rules.

Co-op Law

As experienced co-op lawyers, we understand the distinctive laws that govern co-ops and understand the challenges they face. We offer innovative solutions to address co-op-related issues and can handle co-op matters including drafting contracts, securing financing, resolving landlord/tenant disputes, advising on policy creation and implementation, and more.

Condo Law

Laws impacting condominiums can be complicated. Our condo lawyers can help! With a strong track record of assisting condos in Long Island, New York City, and the Metropolitan New York area, we provide comprehensive legal support in handling the issues affecting condominiums.

Common Charge & HOA Assessment Collections

One of the most frequently recurring problems that our Condominium and Homeowners Association clients face is the non-payment of common charges and assessments. At Schneider Buchel LLP, we have a department dedicated exclusively to handling the issues surrounding the collection of common charge and assessment arrears.

Corporate Representation & Disputes

Corporate representation and disputes involve legal principles that govern the relationship between corporations, their representatives, and the resolution of conflicts that may arise in the course of corporate activities. Whether you are seeking advice on corporate governance, require representation in a dispute, or need guidance on regulatory compliance, we are here to help.


In legal disputes, individuals and businesses often find themselves entangled with another party. Our commercial litigation lawyers evaluate and represent clients in claims and defenses for various disputes. We handle administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution, trials, and appeals.

Real Estate Law & Litigation

Real estate transactions are one of the most complex areas of the law. It is crucial to have an attorney with the necessary knowledge and experience to identify contract issues and navigate the process. Our real estate attorneys take the time to understand your transaction and negotiate favorable contract terms for you.

Appellate Law

What happens if you or your adversary are unhappy with a verdict or ruling (including certain interim Court orders) from a trial court? Whether the decision was made by a judge or a jury, any party can appeal the case to a higher tribunal. Our team is well-versed in appellate practice and has handled many appeals.
