Barbara Billiot Stage graduated from the Florida A & M College of Law and immediately put her experience with homeowner associations to use by establishing a law firm to assist homeowners with disputes involving their associations.
After working with the Office of Regional Counsel as an Assistant Regional Counsel, Mrs. Stage recognized the need for attorneys dedicated to protecting the rights of homeowners who live in communities with little or no regulation by state agencies. A part-time practice quickly grew into a full-time career. Recognizing few homeowners
can afford to litigate their disputes with associations, Mrs. Stage made the decision to represent associations as an opportunity to provide educate to board members about ways to operate and manage an association without creating unnecessary disputes and costly litigation.
