Jack McCabe has concentrated on the area of community association law in Maryland for thirty years.  Before joining Rees Brooom in 2016, he was a name partner of the law firm Chen & McCabe, LLP, a Montgomery County firm that traces its roots to the early 1980's.

Jack has represented community associations of all types and sizes, in virtually every issue they face. His clients range from small eight-unit communities which deal with the task of maintaining storm water containment ponds to large planned unit development communities with sub-associations, umbrella associations, and the myriad of responsibilities that essentially make them analogous to small city governments. He has obtained injunctive and other relief in scores of covenant enforcement cases.

His practice also has included representation of the City of Westminster, Maryland, particularly regarding municipal code enforcement. In addition, he has considerable experience in the area of wills and estates, as the probate of estates often impacts community associations in their collection of assessments.

Jack has been a guest lecturer at the University of Baltimore Law School and the Washington College of Law (American University) on community association law.  He’s been asked to participate on numerous seminar panels for the Community Association Institute [CAI], the Maryland Homeowners Association, Inc. and Lorman Education services.  The CAI recognized his involvement with the CAI Maryland Legislative Committee by giving Jack its Maryland Public Advocate award in 2000. 

Jack has also served as a hearing panel chair for nearly 20 years for the Montgomery County Commission on Common Ownership Communities (CCOC), where he has written opinions on dozens of community association cases running the gamut of homeowner and association issues. In 2008 he received the Commission’s award for distinguished service.
