Real Estate Law

Purchasing or selling a home is a significant, and increasingly complicated, process. Realtors and lenders can be helpful, but only an experienced real estate attorney can give you reliable legal advice. To successfully navigate a real estate transaction you need to understand issues such as escrow, mortgage finance and home inspection contingencies, title insurance and disclosure statements, “short sales”, “bank sales”, and a myriad of other legal issues. Furthermore, you need an experienced, aggressive attorney to coordinate your transaction with the real estate agents, lenders and opposing counsel to get you to the closing table in a timely fashion. With over 30 years of experience in the real estate field, we can advise and assist you through the entire process.

Wills, Trusts & Estates

Do you want to be the one who decides how your estate is distributed or do you want that decision left up to the State? Are you OK with your heirs paying unnecessary expenses, maybe even inheritance taxes, or do you want to take steps to avoid this? Properly drawn Wills and/or Trusts will put you in control. Additionally, we can prepare Living Wills and Health Care Power of Attorneys to insure that you are cared for in a crisis.
