About Us
For over 25 years, Hessel Aluise & O’Leary, P.C. (HAO) (formerly known as Hessel Aluise and Neun, P.C.) has provided experienced and practical legal advice to developers, owners, lenders, and managers involved in the provision of multifamily affordable housing and FHA mortgage insured projects.  Our unique focus on the dynamic area of federally-assisted and publicly owned multifamily housing means that our attorneys have deep knowledge of the laws, regulations, and policies affecting our clients’ operations and transactions and how to translate that knowledge to meet the needs of our clients.  Located in Washington, DC, we are well-positioned to anticipate and advise on the changing regulatory landscape and to help shape the policies likely to affect our clients and the industry in the future.

HAO was established in 1991 by partners Art Hessel and Tim Aluise as a firm focused exclusively on providing clients highly personalized and practical advice on financing, developing and operating their affordable housing portfolios.  While the scope and size of our practice areas have expanded considerably since that time, our attorneys remain committed to the fundamental goals of exceptional client service and cutting edge knowledge of federal housing laws and programs. 

Our clients range from national corporate entities that own and manage thousands of affordable units in urban areas to owners of small multifamily rural properties.  We represent public entities with a jurisdiction-wide portfolio, national lenders managing millions of dollars in financing for affordable projects, as well as non-profit mission-oriented organizations with a single asset.  In all cases the service our attorneys give clients is designed to be pragmatic, cost-effective, and customized to each client and each transaction.
