Tilden Moschetti, Esq. is the lead attorney and founder of the Moschetti Law Group, PC, and author of Creating Your Estate Plan and The Commercial Real Estate Legal Survival Guide Every Owner Needs.
Personal experience in all aspects of real estate
Tilden isn’t just an attorney. He is an owner of commercial real estate, a tenant, a buyer, and a seller. He has created investment syndications and paid investors at liquidation. He has brokered investment sales, managed property, and leased it. Tilden doesn’t just talk the talk—he walks the walk.
Tilden knows firsthand the stress that property owners feel. Whether it is needing to get the lease right to make sure the tenant stays liable, litigating against a defendant who stubbornly demands too much, or having investors counting on the syndication to have stable passive income, he has been there also.
Why real estate law?
Even before law school, Tilden had a passion for real estate. In fact, the driving force for committing law school after receiving his MBA was that Tilden had his sights set on becoming a real estate developer.
As Tilden worked on his business plan for real estate development, he found that the legal system, with its contracts, laws governing stakeholders, and land-use rules, was a secret sauce to master. Once in law school, he found the laws of real property, estates, and federal income taxation were the most interesting to him, and he knew that the practice of law, not just knowledge of it, was the right path.
Unlike other law students who changed focus or tried out different areas of law, Tilden has been a real estate attorney from the very beginning and has additional expertise as a commercial real estate broker and financial analyst.
Why estate planning and probate?
Tilden also gravitated to finance and the preservation of wealth from an early age. His speech at his 8th-grade graduation was about the stock market and how the rules of capital growth applied to growth through school. In law school, his thesis “Step-Ups in Basis for Inherited Offshore Properties” analyzed tax, asset protection, and estate planning issues.
The finance aspect has always been of interest as well. Tilden has pursued additional knowledge by earning a Series 7 license (no longer active) and education from the CFA Institute.
A trusted attorney
Tilden found himself working with clients in challenging situations that could have been avoided if the original contract or lease addressed the crucial points. This insight helped Tilden find the areas where parties to real estate transactions most needed legal help.
It has been his experience that those clients, who previously relied on the advice of friends or well-meaning real estate agents, instead of a trusted attorney, often found themselves with lesser outcomes, greater exposure to liabilities, and even unnecessary litigation.
Tilden’s advice is always real, practical, and, of course, legal. He is painstakingly vigilant about protecting his clients’ assets and providing advice that serves his clients’ whole financial picture.
Clients who work with Tilden and his law firm know they are not hiring just any lawyer: he holds an MBA in addition to a law degree, is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (a preeminent certification for real estate finance professionals), and has advanced financial analysis training that allows him to offer clients a clear view on the economic decisions they are making. He also provides clients the benefit of his extensive experience working with very high net worth individuals and Fortune 500 companies such as HP, Cisco Systems, Adobe, and McKesson.
Tilden is a highly regarded expert in real estate (commercial real estate in particular), probate, and estate planning. He has been featured on NPR, NBC News, People Magazine, the National Law Journal, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Los Angeles Business Journal. He is a sought-after public speaker on real estate and estate planning legal issues, and his books have won the prestigious Legal Excellence Award for Literature.
Known for his ability to successfully work with entrepreneurs, property owners, celebrities, and business leaders, Tilden has created stellar deals for his clients in good economic times and bad. His clients have come to depend on Tilden’s integrated approach in which every transaction is a part of the larger picture: meant to maximize the client’s position while increasing his or her net worth.
