Kansas Real Estate Lawyers
The real estate litigation attorneys at Joseph Hollander & Craft in Wichita, Kansas City, Lawrence & Topeka Kansas handle both real estate transactions and litigation. Why does this matter? When handling transactions, we come to the table with experience in litigating transactions that went awry. This helps our clients avoid problems that can result in litigation-before the transaction closes. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” And if a transaction goes wrong, our experience in transactions informs our preparation for depositions and trial. The two work hand in hand.
Real Estate Transactions
If you are buying or selling real estate, you need a trusted advisor who can help you navigate around potential legal problems. Many believe a real estate agent will give them adequate protection, but real estate agents cannot provide legal advice. Buyers and sellers who want to protect their legal rights need an experienced real estate attorney on their side.
We represent clients in the purchase and sale of residential and commercial real estate. We help buyers safeguard against future liability and work with sellers to secure their rights. When your investment is at stake, it pays to protect your legal rights. Give us a call and learn how having a trusted advisor in your corner can make all the difference.
Real Estate Litigation
Owning real estate comes with many risks. When problems arise, we aggressively advocate for our clients in federal court, state courts, and arbitration’s. We represent real estate owners in a wide variety of disputes, including transaction fraud, environmental contamination, construction, and commercial foreclosure.
Your choice of attorney can be critical, as not every litigation attorney has the experience and inclination to take a case to trial. When it comes to real estate litigation, we are trial lawyers, not settlement lawyers. We know how to try cases and aggressively represent our clients in court. And our reputation for trying and winning cases helps us achieve even better results for our clients without going to court.
Sometimes a piece of real estate becomes less attractive the more you know about it, and sometimes sellers have a way of “forgetting” about certain problems. As a result, some buyers end up with real estate that is far different than what they thought they were buying. When this happens, you need an aggressive advocate. We are experienced trial lawyers who know how to prove a seller didn’t just “forget” about the problem, and we have a track record of success in federal and state courts. Our attorneys have also published in this area.
If your property has environmental problems such as asbestos or groundwater contamination, or if you are a business owner and the EPA or KDHE is knocking at your door, you need an aggressive advocate with knowledge of federal and state environmental laws and experience handling environmental matters. We represent property owners facing environmental issues and defend businesses accused of environmental violations by federal and state authorities.
If your new home or commercial building isn’t what you paid for, give us a call. We represent both property owners and construction companies in construction disputes, including new construction, roofing, and restoration claims.
We represent a select group of lenders in commercial foreclosure matters and have significant experience in this area. If you are a commercial lender, give us a call and let us show you how we can optimize your recovery.
