Practice Areas

Board-certified advocates assist with family, property, and litigation matters

  • Real estate — In residential and commercial real estate matters, we handle transactions, disputes and other matters such as issues that arise from homeowners’ agreements.

A lot has happened within the legal landscape since our firm was established. There have been changes in laws, policies and procedures as society and technology have evolved. What hasn’t changed, however, is our steadfast commitment to meeting the changing needs of our clients and community.
