In Memory

It is with great sadness that we share our beloved partner and friend, Matthew N. Perlstein passed away on February 19, 2020.

Matt was a graduate of Bard College (A.B. 1968) and the Boston University School of Law (J.D. 1973).  Since 1991 he concentrated his practice on condominium and community association law, representing condominium, community and homeowner associations.

Matt was a member of the Community Association Institute’s College of Community Association Lawyers since 1994. He served as chair of the Institute’s National Lawyer’s Committee, and as a board member and president of the Institute’s Connecticut Chapter. He was also a member of the Executive Committee of the Real Property Section of the Connecticut Bar Association. Since 1983, he wrote and lectured on issues of condominium law for the Community Associations Institute, the Connecticut Bar Association and the American Bar Association.  He served on the advisory committees to the Connecticut Law Revision Commission that adapted the original Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act and two revisions of the Act for use in Connecticut.  He chaired the committee that prepared the original Connecticut Common Ownership Manual and was lead author of the second edition of the Manual, both published by the Connecticut Bar Association.
