Real Estate Law

RealEstateFor most of us, buying or selling real estate is one of the largest financial transactions of our lives. Due to the financial and legal factors involved, if you’re contemplating entering into, or are in the midst of, a real estate transaction, you should consult with a lawyer right away.

We can:

  • Draft deeds, deeds of trust, promissory notes, and other real estate documents

  • Draft your sales contract or review a contract from the other party and explain the terms
