We also handle the sale of real estate as part of probate or ancillary proceedings when settling an estate.

Our offices are located in Huntington and Brookhaven, but we will come to your home to meet with you, if necessary.

Our Residential Real Estate Practice

We advise clients throughout the course of a successful residential real estate acquisition, from the negotiation of terms to the closing. We will carefully prepare all legal documents, including deeds, buy-sell agreements, promissory notes, mortgages, and easements or restrictive covenants. We will take care of all title work, so that you know about all liens and encumbrances on the property, and can appropriate action to clear title. We will also attend the closing with you, or on your behalf, so that we can deal with any contingencies that may arise.

We offer special discounts to senior citizens, as well as active duty military personnel, police officers, firefighters and health care workers.
