Legal Guidance for Housing and Community Associations
A Team of Experienced Wisconsin Lawyers
Efficiently forming, and then running, a condominium or other community association can be extremely challenging. It is important to create a standard set of rules and regulations without infringing too deeply upon your residents' personal liberties. You must also remain mindful of the bottom line of costs and meeting all legal regulations applicable to your development.
At Sweet & Maier, S.C., we assist community associations and other property owners in handling their legal concerns in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible. Our lawyers have decades of experience providing clients in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois with meaningful legal solutions.

Meaningful Experience Working With Wisconsin Condominium Law
Our founder, Lowell E. Sweet, served on the committee that revised Wisconsin's condominium laws, and received a special citation from the Wisconsin Legislature for his work on the Condominium Act of Wisconsin. Over the past several decades, attorney Sweet has developed extensive knowledge about housing and subdivisions. He has lectured and authored books and articles on the subject. Attorneys Maier and Coletti have lectured on legal issues applicable to community associations at the College of Community Association Lawyers.
Our lawyers are knowledgeable about housing and condominium law, and are familiar with Fair Housing regulations, statutes and relevant court decisions. We are active members of the Condominium Association Institute (CAI) and the Wisconsin Condominium Association.
