Objective-Based Analysis

Due to our extensive experience representing people being pursued by lenders, we are able to suggest courses of action that best meet our clients' objectives.  

Counterclaim Evaluation

As litigators, we understand that the best defense is a good offense.  We look for claims in each situation, and file suit when it serves your interests.

Avoid Bankruptcy

Real Estate Attorneys

Our real estate attorneys help with disputes.  We also work on a flat-fee to help you with all the necessary paperwork to buy or sell real estate.  You may be able to skip the hefty percentage to a real estate agent if you already know the property you want to buy or sell.

Protect Your Home

Our clients want their problems solved without resorting to bankruptcy. They might be concerned about their credit, reputation, or want to avoid giving up property. Sometimes they can’t qualify for bankruptcy. In any of these situations, we work hard to find solutions for our clients without bankruptcy, usually by bringing the fight to the bank.  Learn how we do it here.
