Dallas, TX, January 05, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Real estate lawyer Sharon Reuler was honored to receive a 2015 Presidential Distinguished Service Award from the Texas Association of Builders (TAB) for her support on some of TAB's legislative initiatives during the 2015 Session of the Texas Legislature, such as the "tort reform" amendment to the Texas Uniform Condominium Act. The awards are given annually to recognize exemplary service and leadership contributions to the home building industry by members of TAB.
"I was surprised by the award," said Sharon. "I work mostly with TAB staff and didn't think my contributions were visible to TAB members and leaders. I appreciate the recognition."
Although the award was announced on November 12, 2015, at a TAB ceremony in Austin, Sharon received the handsome crystal plaque from TAB President Tim Jackson at the board meeting of the Dallas Builders Association two weeks later. "I loved getting the award from Tim Jackson, under whom I served on the Government Relations Committee," said Sharon. The presentation in front of the DBA board was especially meaningful to Sharon, an active member of the DBA since 1995 - the same association in which her father had been active during his 20-year career as a custom homebuilder in Dallas.
Sharon Reuler is one of the best known attorneys in Texas on the law of common interest communities ‑ subdivisions and condominiums with mandatory homeowners associations. A graduate of The University of Texas School of Law, Sharon has practiced exclusively in the area of deed restricted developments and property owners associations since 1987. Since 2002, she largely limits her representation to residential real estate developers. She has her own firm. For more information about Sharon Reuler, please visit http://www.txlandlaw.com
