    5 star review  I spoke with Shawn. He phoned exactly on the time assigned. He listened to me and gave a response that put my mind at ease. I have spoken to three other law offices in the past 7 or 8 years regarding my issue. At the present time I do not need legal action and when I do in the future, I will definitely be in touch with him. For the first time since this problem, I feel comfortable for the time being, at least. Thank you Shawn.

How To Choose a real estate lawyer

The cost of a lawyer is considerably reasonable. It varies depending on if you’re buying or selling and the complexity of the transaction.


When it comes to real estate, the documents are complex and the financial risks are large. A lawyer looks out for your best interests by ensuring you are protected from adverse conditions that can happen with properties. Letting you sleep peacefully knowing your lawyer is looking out for you.

It is difficult to choose a law firm or lawyer. We recommend looking at Google reviews on the law firms that you find, and read up on the bios of each lawyer. A law firm that has overall positive reviews, and is actively working to help their customers is what you should look for.

You will need a lawyer to review the conditions and facilitate purchasing or selling a house. Your mortgage is between you and your bank or mortgage broker. However our lawyers would be happy to review any mortgage contracts if you are concerned.
