Real Estate                                                                                                                            

Our Real Estate development practice understands that the purchase and permitting of real estate for commercial, industrial, recreational or residential development is a market driven, intricate legal process with a high risk/reward ratio for our clients. We provide practical legal advice grounded in a broad knowledge base of municipal law and understanding of the local communities and their land use boards. Importantly, we respect the need as much as possible to align and harmonize the permitting strategy with the terms of the business deal for the acquisition for the property. With the extensive practical development experience we are able to take a project from conceptual evaluation and due diligence through permitting and financing to sale or lease up for the end users.

Estate Planning                                                                                                                    

We provide individuals of all ages with estate planning services. We believe that effective estate planning meets the following oversimplified goals: fulfilling the current needs of the client; preserving their assets for future generations; and minimizing taxes. In trying to achieve these goals we recognize that every family is different and, therefore, spend the time necessary to understand each client's situation and then custom draft documents to fit.

We are experienced in all aspects of estate planning from the drafting of simple wills and powers of attorney to the drafting and administration of complex trusts. Once an appropriate estate plan has been established, we have the experience and knowledge to properly assist with the administration of the estate or trust including, if necessary, probate administration.
