Real Estate and Business Litigation

Real estate and business litigation is one of the firm’s primary practice areas.

Matters handled at the courthouse include actions for specific performance of real estate sales contracts, contract disputes, partnership disputes, covenants-not-to-compete, lis pendens litigation and collection cases.
