Your father will need to pay off his mortgage in full, unless you can assume the mortgage. The lender would need to approve that. Another more traditional option would be if he sells you the property and you take out a mortgage to pay him, the proceeds of which he could use to pay off the mortgage. He will need to consult with an accountant to be sure that selling or transferring the investment property is in the best interest for his business.
Many transactional Attorneys will have experience in all of these areas. You should not need to hire separate Attorneys. Unlike Physicians, Attorneys do not have a licensed "specialty" and many cover several practice areas for exactly this reason, many legal problems do not fit neatly in one category.
