As an experienced attorney, I see the world of real estate as a great opportunity for people who choose to take advantage of it – especially in the San Francisco Bay Area, which seems immune from the problems that most other parts of the U.S. face. At my Berkeley law practice, I help my clients pursue opportunities while minimizing unnecessary legal costs and the risk of litigation.
I handle both residential and commercial real estate transactions. Purchases, sales and commercial leasing constitute a major component of my commercial real estate law practice. I view those areas as a logical extension of the business organization side of my practice. I am available to structure the deal, create the documentation to support it and help shepherd it through to fruition.
In addition to commercial transactions, in which I help negotiate and review the financing, many people seek me out to review their residential real estate transactions. Even though real estate brokers are involved, I can serve as a check against what the broker is advising or failing to advise. It is a good idea to hire a lawyer for a residential real estate purchase or sale, even if it is not required by law. Real estate purchases are some of the most significant financial decisions that families make. It is important to approach them thoroughly, with full attention to all relevant facts and laws.
