Real Estate- Commercial/Investment​. Our office has extensive experience in real estate matters.  We can  provide legal assistance with purchasing (contract negotiation and  management, guidance with due diligence and loan acquisition and  negotiation), owning, managing, protecting, and selling real property. Some examples of projects include: easement negotiation, drafting and dispute resolution, distressed/defaulted loan negotiations, defeasance, 1031  exchanges, title issues, drafting of title documents, etc.

Landlord/Tenant​.  We assist both landlords and  tenants in reviewing the lease, drafting a lease, and/or  negotiating lease provisions for retail, office,  warehouse, mixed-use and other commercial property types. We also assist with lease dispute resolution- this can take many forms including negotiating a settlement, filing an unlawful detainer on behalf of the landlord, or defending against an unlawful detainer action on behalf of the tenant.  

Corporate and Business Law.  We provide tailored consultations in a whole scope of issues from business  formation to sale, succession planning, partition actions, or wind up  and dissolution. These include but are not limited to: business entity  selection and formation (limited liability companies, corporations,  partnerships and other entity forms for general business and  professionals); purchase and sale of business; business operations  advising, including entity and employee management, business planning,  commercial leases, business loan document advising, business buy-sell  agreements; succession planning, business wind-ups; and consultations  regarding ADA compliance.

Contract Law​.  General business and real property law contract drafting, review, and  dispute resolution.  If you have a contract issue, we can review your  contract and give you an overview of your legal rights and  responsibilities. We can also assist in creating contracts that will consider for known issues and concerns in your particular area of business.

Estate Planning and Administration​​.   Whether it be preparing of a living trust, will, durable power of  attorney or advance health care directive, our office takes a  customized approach to the estate planning process in order to achieve  the specific goals of the individual. Since our practice extends to  business matters and family law, we are able to provide clients with a  holistic view of their estate plan and a wide array of tools to accomplish their goals.  The guidance we provide for an estate administration can be as minimal as providing an  overview of tasks that need to happen after a loved one dies or as  extensive as reviewing all the estate matters and managing the  resolution of the estate to final distributions and closing.

Coordination with Other Professionals.  Our office  works with the client’s chosen investment, brokerage,  tax or other professional to assist individuals in all aspects of  representation, whether it is a business matter, real estate matter, or  working through the difficult time after a love one passes.

We can also Review, Organize and/or Digitize Corporate Documents and Estate Planning Documents.
