REAL ESTATE LAW
Whether you are buying or selling a property, hiring an attorney to assist with the process is highly recommended and invaluable. These transactions are often complicated and require the reviewing and preparation of various legal documents from listing to closing. At times, Buyers or Sellers may need to enforce contractual rights or even cancel contracts. Every real estate transaction is unique, and navigating through one alone can be difficult and overwhelming. The best way to secure your rights in these transactions is by having an attorney. Our attorneys will work closely with you through every step of your transaction, from attorney review through closing, guiding you on your contractual rights and obligations. Our upfront flat fees means no surprise up-charges at the closing table. We have worked with first-time home-buyers, seasoned investors, and everyone in-between. If you are currently considering selling or buying, or have entered into a contract for the purchase and sale of a property, contact this office for a free consultation.
WILLS & ESTATE PLANNING
It is one of the most important documents anyone could sign, while also being a document hardly anybody wants to think about. But the fact is we all need to think about our Will, and any other documents required to facilitate our estate planning. No matter how simple or complex our estate might be, without the proper documents, what happens to that estate is completely out of our hands should something unexpected happen. If you already have a Will, but have not updated it in some time, consider consulting with an attorney to see if any changes are necessary due to any life changes. If you wish to properly safeguard your real and personal property, or ensure that minor children are cared for in a certain manner in the event of death or illness, the best way to do that is to execute a Will with the help of an experienced attorney.

Ms. Magao’s decision to open her own Law Office was based in part on her desire to be accessible to her Clients on a more personable level rather than being faced with the pressure of “billable hours” that larger law firms put on associates which inevitably creates a distance and inaccessibility between the lawyer and Client.
