After working for the lenders prosecuting foreclosure cases throughout the State of Florida, I decided to open my own practice and defend Florida homeowners from foreclosure. However, I always discuss and create a plan with the client. We do not defend foreclosures simply to pride ourselves on slowing down the bank, but as a bigger picture resolution to help people solve their financial problems.

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.
