Real Estate Law

Representation for Individuals & Businesses

Real estate law generally governs who may own and use land. It deals with a variety of commercial or residential issues.

Like other areas of legal practice, real estate law has distinct case law, statutes, and terminology that need to be fully understood. We provide knowledgeable, practical counsel to clients in a number of important areas related to real estate law.

There are many legal concerns you may have when buying, selling, or managing real property. Our team has a comprehensive understanding of real estate law to ensure that your case is handled appropriately.

Representing individuals with real estate matters often requires an understanding of additional areas of law. For example, in a real estate transaction, there may be important tax consequences that should be taken into account before an agreement is reached. If there has been an injury on your property, then understanding the potential liability and the role of any insurance you may have can be confusing and frustrating.

We handle cases involving:

  • EEOC claims
  • Wrongful termination or failure to hire
  • Unemployment compensation disputes
  • Workers’ compensation defense
  • Workers’ compensation claims for employees

Ownership Disputes

These kinds of disputes can form between family members or between companies, developers, and/or sellers. They can be caused by things like fraudulent deeds, slander of title, and the passing of property onto children.


A strong contract is your best safeguard whether you are a buyer or a seller. We can help you draft contracts and/or assess contracts before you sign paperwork.

Purchasing & Selling

Buying or selling property can be incredibly exciting and rewarding – but it is wise to work with a Rolla real estate lawyer who can protect your interests and ensure that the deal works out in your favor.

Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Whether you are a property manager dealing with a problematic tenant or a renter who has been mistreated, you have rights. We can protect them.

Home Loans & Foreclosures

Our team works with both home buyers and home loan lenders on issues regarding mortgages and foreclosures.

Easement & Border Issues

We can help you create or transfer an easement and resolve disputes regarding property borders.


“I was represented by David Mills in a civil litigation and was so impressed by his work ethic that even though at one time I thought we had no chance to win, he researched the case so thoroughly that we won and even his legal fees were very fair. I would definitely recommend him and his firm.”
— Bob D.
“Recently, I was represented by Scott McBride as a defendant in a minor, but not insignificant, legal matter. We had never met before and I had no experience hiring an attorney. Needless to say, I was nervous about what it would cost and what would happen next, etc. I am relieved to say that nervousness was quickly replaced with confidence. Scott was professional, yet approachable. He explained things clearly, offered opinions based on experience (without sugar coating it), and I always knew where we stood with the case. When he wasn't immediately available, his staff kindly helped me. Other law firms may have done an adequate job, too. But I'm glad I chose this one.”
— Eric M.
