From rezoning land for development to negotiating with banks over short sales -- real estate law is our top priority. We don't distract ourselves with many other types of law. In such cases, trusted attorneys in other fields are at our fingertips, and we are happy to make referrals. Property law is our obsession.
Prepared specifically to practice law in real estate, Eric Earley enhanced his J.D. with an LL.M. in Real Property Development from the University of Miami School of Law. With over a dozen years experience in real estate prior to becoming an attorney, and having operated a real estate brokerage in two states, no challenge is too complex and the needs of no client are too simple.
While geared toward real estate development, in the current financial crisis the practice has adapted toward real estate financial workouts. A key focus at present is seeking debt relief for clients--with particular emphasis on negotiating settlements, deficiency waivers, and general releases from lenders.
We always caution potential clients that every situation is unique, and to be wary of anyone with a one-size-fits-all approach. To a hammer everything looks like a nail, but we have more than one tool in our toolbox. The solutions we seek are always customized to each client's situation. If you have been advised by anyone to consider bankruptcy, a short sale, a loan modification, or foreclosure, you may benefit greatly from the advantage of a second opinion.
Consultation fees are normally $200 for 30 minutes, but for the rest of 2016, initial consultations on mortgage related issues are free for Nevada clients. The HAFA program and Nevada's Foreclosure Mediation Program are ending soon and this may be your last chance to take advantage of them.
