“The litigation team led by Jeff Roberts, Marc Markel, Amy VanHoose and Laura Alaniz at Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC has represented us and several of the Associations we serve on many occasions and while litigation is never a pleasure, we found them extremely capable, very responsive to our needs, aggressive without being rude, and most of all, practical with a great sense of our business needs.  We have experienced many very successful outcomes as a result of the efforts and guidance of the attorneys at Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey and would not hesitate to recommend her."

“I can't speak highly enough of Amy VanHoose and Roberts Markel Weinberg. Our HOA was involved in a very difficult lawsuit and Amy was able to ‘steer us though troubled waters’ and worked very hard to resolve it to everyone's satisfaction.”

"Amy and her team did a great job in my defense. They were on top of everything and always kept me informed. Victory was ours thanks to them!"

John H. Shepherd, President of Seven Coves Association, Inc.
""Ms. Amy VanHoose and her team recently represented our homeowner association in litigation with a property owner involving a deed restriction violation.  Amy and her team members did an outstanding job representing us.  They all quickly grasped the situation, displayed a superior understanding of Texas Law, and used all of this to present our position in a very compelling manner.  They did an excellent job advising and working with our board of directors during mediation negotiations, and the issue was resolved and settled out of Court in a beneficial manner for our HOA.  I would highly recommend Amy and her excellent team to anyone needing legal representation in HOA issues."
