Real estate transactions are complex transactions that involve many different policies, legal rights and laws. As a result, it not uncommon for real estate litigation issues to arise. Common issues include mortgage disputes, foreclose issues, implied warranties and disputes over penalty clauses in the contract. Other real estate issues include title problems, easements, zoning and eminent domain. With experience in all of these issues, I can deliver the best legal advice and representation.

And if the landlord has to evict a tenant, I ensure that the legal guidelines are carefully followed in order to avoid penalties. On the flip side, I can assist clients as tenants with problems surrounding non-compliance of apartment repairs and injuries that occur on the apartment complex’s premises.
