Fields of Law

Here you will find an overview of the fields of law our attorneys practice.

Our Specializations

Real Estate Law


Buying a home is the largest single investment most people will make in their lifetime. Protecting and educating our clients in this process is of the highest priority.  By keeping you informed through every step from contract to closing you can rest comfortably knowing that your transaction is being handled by an experienced professional who has your best interests at heart.




As counsel and closing attorney for various mortgage lenders, we can help you obtain the best possible rates, fees and terms for your mortgage financing needs and make the process of obtaining a mortgage commitment as fast and easy as possible whether you are purchasing, refinancing or seeking a reverse mortgage.  We also represent Private Capital Group LLC, a short term hard money Lender which specializes in providing capital for borrowers who buy, rehabilitate and sell 1-4 family and commercial distressed properties.


Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning


It is always best to be prepared and make sure your Wills and Trusts are set up correctly so there is no confusion and all your wishes are carried out as planned.  We also prepare Powers of Attorney, Living Wills and Health Care Proxies to insure that someone you trust can make decisions and carry out your day to day business in the event that you can not act or speak for yourself.  If you do not have a Will then State laws will determine who inherits your property.  Having a Will is an inexpensive and easy way to ensure that your property passes in the manner you want it to, and proper planning can reduce or even eliminate your estate tax liability so that your loved ones get the maximum benefit of your estate allowed by law.



Moving Violations Law


Did you know that a moving violation can cause your insurance premiums to increase drastically, or cost you your driving privileges?  In many instances we can negotiate a settlement of your moving violation to reduce or eliminate any points on your driving record and keep your premiums from increasing or your license from being suspended. If you get a ticket, even if you feel you deserved it, often times we can get the charges reduced and save you time and money in the process.


Personal Injury Law


Have you been involved in an accident, or had a slip and fall with an injury?  You may be entitled to compensation for you injuries.  Contact us for a free consultation and evaluation of your case.
