We have 35+ Years of Industry Experience
We have been practicing commercial real estate law since 2000. During that time we have closed over a billion dollars’ worth of commercial real estate transactions throughout the Southeast, ranging from simple acquisitions to complex portfolios, new developments, leases, joint ventures, ground leases, preferred equity arrangements, synthetic leases and defeasances.
Whether it is multi-family, industrial, self-storage or raw land, we can meet your commercial real estate needs at rates that put the big firms to shame.
Our sister company, Brookhaven Title, is a full service real estate title and escrow agency serving Georgia and the Southeast.
Professional Services at
Our fees are affordable because our overhead is low and we do the work ourselves. We handle transactions efficiently for our clients with the goal of closing the deal – we are not to just trying to generate billable hours. You will not have to wait days for a return call from us.
We make ourselves available to clients and leave some margin in our schedule so that we can respond quickly to urgent matters. Our clients receive the attention of an attorney and are not handed off to low level staff or junior associates lacking big picture perspective and experience and trying to hit billing quotas.
