RMWBH Law has announced Shareholder Leah K. Burton has moved from RMWBH’s San Antonio office to RMWBH’s Dallas office to enhance the property owners’ association practice area in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
Burton will collaborate with existing clients and business partners to develop ways to enhance RMWBH’s customer service and legal service offerings in the DFW market.
“I look forward to this new challenge and to working with the managers and board members of the associations that RMWBH already values as partners, as well as forming and cultivating new relationships with management and boards in the DFW market,” said Burton.
“The RMWBH Team is very excited to have Leah’s home base move up to the Dallas area. With Leah working in the property owners’ association Dallas arena, we are expecting great things for our current and prospective clients,” said Clint Brown, RMWBH’s POA Section Head.
While in Dallas, Burton will continue to counsel her existing clients across the state of Texas on the ever-changing nature of property owners’ association law.
Burton joined RMWBH at the beginning of 2020 based out of the firm’s San Antonio office. She expertly guided clients through the COVID-19 pandemic by providing routine updates on government regulations and policy changes. She quickly became an asset to Community Associations Institute’s San Antonio Chapter rising to President of the Chapter. Burton also became a favorite of RMWBH’s educational webinar audiences with her high-energy, easy to understand presentations. Through education is where Burton has had her greatest impact on the POA industry.
She is helping transform the POA industry internationally through her work on diversity and inclusion. Her collaboration with RMWBH Associate Noelle Hicks and Wil Washington of Chadwick, Washington, Moriarty, Elmore & Bunn formed the basis for CAI’s Diversity and Inclusion Guide and also resulted in the bestowment of the College of Community Association Lawyers’ (“CCAL”) Best Manuscript Award following the 2021 CAI National Law Seminar. Burton’s advocacy on discrimination issues, as well as her frequent presentations to community managers and board members around Texas are helping to foster more inclusive communities statewide.
