Real Estate Law
Real Estate Law represents the largest percentage of the work that the firm does. My staff and I still take the “old fashioned” approach and complete searches of all areas that may be a concern to the purchaser to ensure that when you walk into your front door, you can be assured that there are no worries. I still ensure that my clients have title insurance to satisfy their financial institutions requirements and in order to protect their new homes and them from title fraud and any unforeseen circumstances. No matter which method we use, the entire staff is experienced in all aspects of real estate law.
