Hiring an attorney should never be taken lightly and just because someone has a license to practice law doesn’t mean they are the right attorney for your situation.


Unfortunately, real estate, along with estate planning, are areas of practice where a lot of attorneys try to handle a transaction without having a lot of experience in that particular area of the law. If I were to ever hire an attorney I would be certain that the attorney I am hiring spends most of their time practicing in that area of law. You wouldn’t go to a foot doctor if you had a heart problem, would you?


So, how do you know if you are choosing the right attorney for your problem? Here are a few questions to consider when you are looking to hire a real estate attorney:

  1. How many transactions like mine have you handled?
  2. What is your billing process?
  3. Who else will be working on my transaction?
  4. Are you up to date on all the local laws and requirements?


If you are looking for a new real estate attorney please contact me and I can answer any questions you might have. And don’t worry, I limit my practice to only three areas of law: real estate, estate planning, and probate. Trust me, if I do not feel that I would be the best attorney for your situation, I have numerous referral sources that can help.
