Halk, Oetinger, and Brown traces its Arizona roots back to 2006 when Philip Brown formed the Brown Law Group. As the creator of the first contingent assessment collection program in Arizona, the firm experienced rapid growth throughout the state. The firm collects the Association’s money at our expense and collects our fees from the debtor. This perfectly aligns the Association’s interest in collecting assessments with the firm’s interest in recovering the attorney’s fees and costs advanced.
Kelly Oetinger joined the firm in 2012 focusing her practice on general counsel work. Kelly became a partner in 2015. John Halk joined the firm in 2015 to manage the firm’s litigation and collections department. John and Kelly became members in 2023. The firm will continue serving our clients across Arizona with the same services that our clients have come to rely on – sound concise legal advice, general counsel work, and assessment collections under the “no fee” contingent collection plan.
The firm has always had a goal to provide expert legal representation to planned communities and condominiums with affordable fee structures. We’ve grown into a leader in Arizona because we’ve done just that. We lead the state in assessment collection for a reason.
