Our real estate department comprises a team of experienced attorneys, paralegals, and support professionals to assist you in the purchase, sale, or refinance of a home or commercial property, and to successfully close your real estate transaction.
We urge clients to contact us as early as possible in the transaction, preferably before anything is signed.
