Tackling your real estate disputes

By assertively applying our 25 combined years of experience and extensive knowledge of all aspects of property rights, civil procedure, finance and business, we can handle your disputes related to:

  • Real property contracts

  • Boundaries and easements
  • Title
  • Liens

Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, we protect your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, we help you to protect your property and your business.

Alternative dispute resolutions (ADR)
ADR refers to other means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. Some contracts require binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation to resolve disputes that arise out of the transaction governed by the agreement. When the cost and time of litigation exceed the likely outcome, you may choose to settle instead. If negotiating a settlement, our tenacity directs the proceedings toward a desirable outcome.
