In addition to her labor practice, Releford routinely counsels community associations in covenant enforcement, revising and amending governing documents, transition from developer to owner control, warranty claims, and collection of delinquent assessments. Releford also defends community associations in fair housing complaints, breach of contract claims, environmental claims, personal injury and tort actions in state courts and before administrative bodies.
She received her law degree from the Howard University School of Law (J.D. 2005), her master’s degree from the University of Baltimore (M.S. 2004), and her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland in 1999. She is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
