Real Estate

Purchasing real estate is one of the most important financial decisions a person will make during his or her lifetime — it is important to make sure the process goes smoothly and as intended. Our attorneys have extensive experience counseling residential and commercial buyers, sellers and developers in various real estate matters:

  • Do you need help with closing documentation?
  • Are you looking for a lawyer to review your contract documents to protect your interests before you sign?
  • Are you looking for a lawyer to review your real estate contract to determine if you or another party has breached that contract?
  • Do you or your business need help with foreclosure or eviction proceedings?
  • Are you a landlord who needs help with property management, lease drafting or a problem tenant?
  • Are you a tenant who has a dispute with your landlord?
  • Are you a landlord who has a dispute with a tenant?
  • Are you a real estate broker who has been sued for professional malpractice?
  • Do you need assistance with the purchase or sale of residential or commercial property?

Perhaps there is a provision in a contract that you don’t understand or that you believe needs revision. We can help.
