We welcome inquires and offer an initial lawyer interview to help you determine if our expertise and background matches your legal issue at no cost to you.

“Through the course of my real estate and law career I have represented commercial real estate landlords and tenants, as well as individuals and families in a wide range of legal and real estate matters including drafting and negotiating real estate purchase and sale agreements, option agreements, shopping center leases, build to suit leases, earnest money disputes and general real estate litigation. In addition to helping clients purchase or sell their homes and investment properties, or obtain an equitable solution to real estate disputes, I represent individuals and businesses with entity formation, business sales, partnership agreements, franchise matters and related transactions and litigation. Everyone likes to save money. The one reoccurring mistake that I see people make is waiting too long to call a lawyer for legal assistance. If you have a contract that you are negotiating or dispute you are trying to sort out, it’s usually more cost effective to obtain legal counsel before committing to a result.  Hindsight is 20/20 and far more expensive than foresight.”
