More than 35 years advising clients in real estate matters such as:

Purchase and Sale Agreements.  It is always wise to consult an attorney in a real purchase or sale, but often buyers and sellers find each other, without the help of a real estate agent.  When there is no agent, who writes the contract?  We can assist buyers and sellers of real estate with the following:

o       Negotiation of the sale or purchase price

o       Preparation of the Purchase Agreement

o       Advice and preparation of seller financing documents

o       Disclosure statements

o       Opening escrow

o       Reviewing and explaining the Preliminary Title Report

o       Escrow instructions for closing

o       1031 Real Property Exchanges

Easement and Boundary Line Issues.  Questions about easements and boundary lines are common, especially in the foothills.  We can assist you with the following:

o        Clarifying easement questions.  Do you have an easement?  Is your property subject to an easement?  Is it a prescriptive easement, or is it deeded?

o       Negotiation for granting and receiving easements.

o       Preparation of Easement Deeds and/or licenses

Real Estate Litigation.  Sometimes, disputes cannot be resolved informally, and clients are either sued, or need to initiate litigation against another party.   Although we stress trying to resolve issues through mediation and/or arbitration, this is not always possible.  We have represented clients in the following types of lawsuits:

o       Quiet Title Actions

o       Partition Actions

o       Recission Actions

o       Unlawful Detainer (Evictions)

o       Landlord/Tenant Disputes

o       Non-disclosure Actions

o       Construction Defects

o       Specific Performance Actions
