Real Estate

For everything that seems so right about your impending residential or commercial real estate transaction, there are numerous unseen things that can go horribly wrong, derailing you en route to your dream home or damaging your business.

Whether you are moving your family into a new home or selling the business you built from the ground up, the devil can be in the details. Our skilled attorneys can detect problems before you come to own them.


We are a full service commercial real estate law firm that can assist you with a wide range of real estate matters from the purchase of raw land to the sale of a developed property and everything in between. We can help you take your project from start to finish.

If you are considering buying, selling, leasing, or investing in commercial real estate property you should consult our firm to ensure that your transaction is structured in the most beneficial way.

Our firm assists clients with the following commercial real estate issues:

  • Purchase and sale of real property
  • Construction (new construction and renovation projects)

Buying or selling a home is probably the most significant financial transaction that anyone undertakes in their lifetime. While this can be an exciting time, without the proper legal guidance, the process can be frustrating, overwhelming and more expensive than necessary.  Even if there are no obvious disagreements between the Buyer and Seller it is advisable for each party to enter into real estate transactions with their own attorney who can help steer them away from common pitfalls and make the transaction an enjoyable experience.

We represent Buyers, Sellers and Financial Institutions from drafting a Purchase and Sale Contract through obtaining the final Title Insurance Policy.
