Real Estate Law

Since our firm’s inception, we have successfully assisted clients in all aspects of real estate law. We represent both individuals and commercial clients in all transactions and proceedings that concern residential and commercial real property. As such, we provide assistance with the purchase and sale of real estate, construction, mortgages, foreclosures, leases, land use and zoning, title examinations, title actions, closings, landlord/tenant disputes, and property management company disputes.

Land Use Law

Our experienced attorneys have successfully represented clients, from individual homeowners to large corporations, in all facets of land development.   We provide assistance to our clients in connection with the processing of applications before planning boards and boards of adjustment for various land use approvals, including variances, subdivisions, and site plans, together with ancillary approvals required from other agencies, such as county planning boards, soil conservation districts and state agencies.  In doing so, we work closely with engineers, architects and other professionals retained by the client to prepare the development plans, conduct studies into such areas as traffic, wetlands and soil permeability or to provide other necessary testimony in order to achieve the best result for our clients.

Wills and Estate Planning

Ensuring that you have an estate plan can protect your interests and the interests of your loved ones in the event of death or a debilitating condition.  If you die without a will, you may be leaving your family members to deal with difficult and time consuming decisions regarding financial issues concerning your estate.  In addition, if you die without an estate plan, decisions regarding the distributions of your assets will be made by the State – not you or your family.  Our experienced attorneys can help you create an estate plan to help you avoid unnecessary disputes among family members or delays in settling your estate.  Whether you are in the process of going through a life changing event, such as getting married or having a child, or simply want to ensure that you are protecting your family, we can help you create or update your current estate plan that satisfies your unique needs.
