ABOUT US

About McFerran Law

Our Real Estate Attorneys at McFerran Law approach the practice of real estate law in two major areas:  We are transaction orientated, but also litigation focused.

Our Experience in Negotiating Real Estate Transactions

We are well equipped to assist our clients with their real estate transactional needs including:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreement drafting
  • Estate planning, Will and Trust document drafting
  • Lease negotiations and drafting leases: commercial & residential
  • In-House, Full-Service escrow department: residential and commercial
  • Deeds and Easements negotiating and drafting
  • Business Opportunity escrow closings.

We firmly believe that involving an experienced real estate attorney at the stage of transaction negotiations and drafting will ensure a favorable outcome from the start by, in most cases, precluding controversies occurring afterward that may lead to litigation.

 

Our Legal Expertise in Real Estate Litigation

However, should the need arise, our Real Estate Attorneys at McFerran Law are experienced and well equipped to litigate all types of real estate disputes. Our attorneys are uniquely positioned to provide you with an energetic, results-driven system of dispute resolution.
