While we do not handle transactional aspects pertaining to the purchase or sale of real property (i.e., drafting contracts and deeds, issuing title insurance, conducting settlement, etc.), we frequently handle disputes that have arisen from such matters.  Where appropriate, we coordinate with the client’s transactional attorney.  Additionally, we do not usually handle residential lease disputes. We would be pleased to provide a referral if your issue is not one that we would handle.
