What Does A Real Estate Attorney Do That A Real Estate Agent Cannot?

While a real estate attorney and a real estate agent can both help in certain areas of a transaction, a lawyer can offer legal advice, and representation, through any legal issue that may arise, develop and review legal documents, and ensure all facets of a transaction are compliant with the law.

We can represent you in the purchase and/or sale of many different types of real estate. Common examples of real estate that we work with include: homes, investment or rental real estate, commercial, residential, developed and underdeveloped, etc. No matter what type of real estate you are dealing with, we can help ensure you are protecting your best interests in your case, no matter how complex it may seem.
