I have been practicing law in the North Country since 1975. The majority of my work involves real estate. I represent sellers and buyers and some out of town lenders to accomodate my buyers. Since I have a number of landlords as clients I have recently added landlord tenant work to the mix. We do evictions.

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.
