Hill Wallack LLP Expands Community Associations Group With Three Leading Attorneys and New Office Opening
PRINCETON, New Jersey, October 1, 2019 — Hill Wallack LLP announced today the growth of its Community Associations Group, adding three leading attorneys, Gregg A. Shivers, George C. Greatrex Jr., and Jennifer A. Webb. This group provides counsel to condominium and homeowner associations, cooperatives, and real estate developers, working closely with association governing boards and committees, management companies, and other professionals to ensure proper and cost-effective operations throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
Located at Cherry Hill Plaza, this new team and location have expanded the firm’s presence in southern New Jersey, joining offices in Red Bank, New York, Princeton, and Cedar Knolls. Ronald L. Perl, Partner-in-charge of the Community Associations Practice Group, stated, “This is a very exciting opportunity for all of us, as we will easily be the state’s most geographically dominant community association practice. In my view, we are leaders in terms of talent as well, and now with George and Gregg aboard, we will seek to continue our group’s expansion throughout the entire state.”
Prior to joining Hill Wallack, Gregg and George were partners of The Law Offices of Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex LLC, and Jennifer was an associate with the firm. Their areas of practice included the representation of condominium and homeowner associations as well as mesothelioma and asbestos litigation, general personal injury claims, and consumer protection.
Each attorney adds tremendous strength to the firm within the community association industry, including the following:
George C. Greatrex Jr.
Spanning the past 30 years, George has devoted a large and growing portion of his practice to the burgeoning area of community association law in New Jersey, representing all forms of common interest communities, including condominiums, townhomes, and single family detached homes. He is a member of the Community Associations Institute (CAI), is the current Chair of the CAI Legislative Action Committee – NJ, and is a frequent lecturer to board members, property managers and lawyers on the issues facing community associations in New Jersey.
