The above photo is of the attorneys in our law firm. I'm the guy in the middle. David (my partner) is on the left and Mike (of Counsel) is on the right. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife Ann and my daughters Mali (James) and Jenny (Kent). I also enjoy traveling, fly-fishing, and acting in the local theatre.
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.
