Second best to none is what separates typical from terrific. Contracts and laws are written in black and white and understood in shades of gray. They are deciphered, decoded, construed and interpreted. If the issues are black and white and it is clear who's going to win, there is little reason to pursue the dispute.
In today's market real estate contracts, including short sales must be structured creatively if they are to succeed. An attorney or title company who can't see the big picture or who sees only traditional black and white issues doesn't provide as much value as someone with a more visionary approach. The attorney who can see the big picture and start with the end in sight and work backwards to get the job done.
We take pride in our work and have an unwavering commitment to provide the best service in the business. Our goal is to provide a pleasant, respectful work environment and build a long term relationship with each client.
