Dear Clients and Friends,

For 15 years we have worked together to provide high quality and experienced legal services for the community association industry. We are proud of the work we have done, and proud of the many trusted relationships we have formed and solidified during this time.

We are both excited to inform you that we have each, with the support of the other, made the decision to take our respective law practices on differing paths. As such, while we will both continue to faithfully serve the legal needs of our clients and the community association industry, we have decided to close Hickey & Petchul, LLP, effective November 20, 2015. From that date forward, our respective locations, and practices, will be as follows:

David Hickey
Hickey & Associates
6 Jenner, Suite 290
Irvine, CA 92618
(949) 614-1550
Dirk Petchul
Berding & Weil LLP
575 Anton Blvd., Suite 460
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
(714) 429-0600

We are both pleased to inform you that during this transition there will be no delay or disruption of any pending work, or in our ability to provide immediate assistance on new matters. We know that you have many choices concerning your legal counsel. We are honored that you chose Hickey & Petchul, LLP as your trusted legal counsel and, from our new locations, we both, look forward to continuing to provide the same trusted legal counsel for many years to come.

As always, please free to contact either one of us with any questions or comments that you may have.

Very truly yours,


David E. Hickey, Esq.
Dirk E. Petchul, Esq.
