Commercial Real Estate

My years of Michigan real estate work have provided me with a deep knowledge of the local real estate market. I am prepared to handle both the legal and financial aspects of your real estate transaction. As a litigator, I understand the value of effective negotiation. I always work to resolve disputes and complete transactions in a timely, cost-effective way. I can assist with:

  • Purchase and leasing contract drafting, review or modification
  • Closings
  • Commercial leasing advice and counsel
  • Business entity set up (for example, a limited partnership or LLC)
  • Litigation

I provide one-on-one guidance in commercial real estate matters including working to prevent or circumvent issues. These issues may involve appraisals, surveys, mortgages, refinancing and related financial documents.

Residential Real Estate

For most people, buying a home is the biggest purchase they will ever make. As a homeowner, I understand both the concerns you may have. I also understand the opportunities that homeownership provides. I will take the time to partner with you through this process to explain each step. I can help with:

  • Deeds and conveyance documents
  • Owner financing documentation
  • Closing documents
  • Buy-sell agreement/contract
  • Title insurance documents

I work with first-time homebuyers as well as seasoned owners. Working with me means that you will get a firsthand analysis of the risks and benefits of your options. I also will explain and handle all of the document execution which for most people is a significant time-saver and stress relief.

Real Estate Litigation

I represent buyers, sellers, real estate professionals and business owners in Michigan real estate litigation. I handle all types of real estate litigation. This includes ownership disputes, landlord-tenant issues, collections and financial disputes. My years of acquired knowledge and experience in western Michigan real estate allow me to quickly evaluate the costs and risks of litigation.

I can assist with disputes that involve:

  • Earnest money issues
  • Arbitrations and mediations
  • Boundary and easement disputes
  • Landlords and tenants
  • Debt and collection issues
  • Workouts, loan modifications, short sales and deed-in-lieu transactions

The benefit of working one-on-one with me is that you receive open and honest communication about the risks and benefits of taking your matter to court. I’ll be candid about your chances in court and what I feel are your best options.
