Real estate litigation attorney:
Real estate litigation requires substantial knowledge of North Carolina property laws and civil litigation, as well as a dynamic courtroom presence. We possess the knowledge necessary to successfully litigate your real estate disputes.

Some disputes are better solved outside of the courtroom. We can guide negotiations to best protect your interests. By retaining an experienced mediator to strategize the contract negotiation process, you can often prevent disputes from arising at a later stage in the real estate transaction, and so save time, money and frustration.
