Real estate is king. So at least so some say. Regardless, it is one of the most significant investments many of us will ever make. It never hurts to get the insight and guidance from professionals having reasonable knowledge in real estate.


Of course, real estate issues are often closely tied to construction industry issues and claims. As such, Cook Law & ADR can advise and advocate on many types of real estate matters. On those matters that may lie just beyond our gray matter, or that may require a bigger fleet of lawyers, we can refer you to several well qualified real estate attorneys or law firms who will work closely with you to achieve your objectives. When confronted with real estate and related issues, Cook Law & ADR can help minimize or protect your exposure to potential risks with sound advice, solid advocacy, or work with you and other involved parties on a range of alternatives to resolve most any dispute.

→  contract drafting, review, and negotiations;
