Furthermore, my answers are clear and correct, not draped in legal jargon that confuses things even more.
  • Hands-on approach — As a sole practitioner, you can be confident that that attorney you hired is the same person working on your case.  I don’t farm out cases to first year associates or leave you to manage your situation alone.

Comprehensive representation for a complete range of real estate issues

I have experience working with various parties involved in real estate transactions and disputes.  Typical clients include:

  • Homeowners Associations — Representing banks and mortgage servicing companies, I had the opportunity to work with many homeowner’s associations in their efforts to recover unpaid assessments from their residents.  Whether it be unpaid assessments or violations of the community rules, I allow you to feel comfortable from the legal standpoint so you can focus on running your association.
  • Homeowners — Do you have issues with the new home you had built or an existing home you purchased?  Did your HOA send you notice of a violation of the association’s rules or do you have a dispute with your neighbor?  There are many types of disputes that can arise which are related to real estate and my diverse experience as a real estate attorney can help ensure you receive the best possible representation for your situation.

  • Real Estate Agents and Brokers – Being a real estate agent is a great job; however, it is less fun when you are dealing with former clients or other parties who are claiming you were negligent in the transaction.  We can help real estate agents to defeat claims from disgruntled former clients or others and quickly get back to the work of selling homes.

For these kinds of legal challenges and others, Rick Davis Legal always provides dedicated counsel tailored to your circumstances.
