Areas of Practice

Landlord-Tenant Law

Residential and Commercial Landlord-Tenant law is a technical, specialized area of law requiring the detailed knowledge and experience to successfully represent clients in cases frequently involving very short time frames. That’s where we come in.

Real Estate 

Representing clients buying a first home, selling one home and buying another, or leasing/renting an apartment or commercial space all require different mixes of knowledge and experience.  For over 35 years we having been providing clients with personalized counsel and representation to help them successfully achieve their goals

Business, Corporations, LLC's

Business and property owners require sound guidance in the choice of the right operating entity for their business or real estate. Liability protection, ownership, and partnership issues require proper planning, implementation and ongoing counsel. The right choice can help keep you out of trouble. The wrong choice can lead to disaster.


We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
— Edmund Burke
