Real Estate

Ownership and use of land is an integral part of everyone’s life, whether personal or business. Real estate transactions may be as simple as a deed to a home or as complex as a multi-state, multi-million dollar business deal. We have substantial hands-on experience in structuring, negotiating and closing real estate deals for clients located throughout the United States.

Our firm can bring you the collective knowledge of a group of lawyers who have seen and done the full spectrum of real estate transactions. We know how others have done similar transactions, and we know the types of problems they have encountered. Our experience becomes your asset, because we can save you time, delays and costs by helping you design a plan that avoids these problems.

We also handle a variety of litigation matters involving real estate, such as title insurance claims, mechanics’ liens, eminent domain proceedings and construction disputes.
