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
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.
