Construction Law has always been my passion. I enjoy nothing more than taking my truck out to the work site and reviewing defects or the progress of an ongoing build with my engineering or bidding experts. No matter how large or pompous the adversary my clients persevere with my focus on the fundamentals of the game. Check out my web site to see a list of my adversaries.
Real estate attorneys deal with the many laws and practice areas associated with land ownership issues. For example, a commercial real estate attorney knows which laws apply to commercial transactions for construction/development projects (such as condo construction), or land use/zoning projects (such as subdividing a parcel of land for development), or real property issues (such as financing a large land purchase). Likewise, residential real estate lawyers help you buy a home, or prevent you from losing your home in foreclosure. They also know how residential tenancy laws work and can advise you of your rights as a tenant. With so many types of real estate attorneys, it is important to find a specialist who does the work you need.
