Real Estate Litigation

Our attorneys specialize in both state and federal litigation and the real estate practice often presents opportunities that require resolution through litigation or other form of dispute resolution. Protecting and preserving a party's interest in real estate frequently requires judicial intervention to resolve controversies and we represent clients in the following areas:

  • Specific performance actions to enforce sales agreements
  • Appeals from adverse zoning board decisions
  • Actions to declare contract interpretations
  • Injunctions from violation of covenants and restrictions, trespass, waste, water diversion
  • Mechanic's lien and Miller Act claims
  • Suits to clear title to property
  • Commercial and residential lease agreement disputes
  • Partition to divide interests acquired through estates
  • Boundary disputes
  • Condemnation defense
  • Riparian Rights including piers, oyster grounds, storm and erosion control structures


Tax planning is an integral part of any real estate transaction. Taxes can be deferred through the sale of an entity, exchanges of like kind property and seller financing. We offer tax advice to buyers and sellers on the consequences related to a purchase and sales. Allocation of assets independent of the real estate can have significant implications on the taxability of the transactions.
