Review Darwin Bustarde

About Me

I am a client and goal focused attorney and I represent an alternative to the common impersonal high hourly rate legal services provided by others.  My practice focuses on business transaction matters and business disputes along with real property related matters, including: property purchase disputes, title disputes, contract disputes, fraud and misappropriation of trade secrets, conversion etc.  In addition, I offer services in construction-related disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, and other matters and services, including small claims advice and appeals and name changes. 


At Bustarde Law, you work directly with your attorney to try to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation.  Please give me a call and consult with me regarding your matter.  Visit my website and legal blog for additional information, thank you.


I also provide legal services to support other attorneys, for example: second-chair trial and pre-trial support, special appearances, deposition coverage (substantive taking or defense if desired), document review, law & motion drafting, appearance and oral argument, research, etc.
