What to Look for When Hiring a PA Real Estate Attorney

If you are about to enter a critical real estate transaction, you are most likely seeking the assistance of an attorney who knows the ins and outs of real estate law. The real estate attorneys here at Friedman Schuman have compiled a short list of features and attributes for you to consider before hiring an attorney to represent you through your critical legal matters. Before proceeding, you should keep the following in mind:

Your Attorney Understands the Law

This is the most important quality of any attorney, and for obvious reasons. Your attorney should be able to answer all of your basic questions concerning your legal matter, whether it be purchasing a home, a commercial property, selling real estate, or otherwise. If you ask an attorney a basic question concerning real estate law and the attorney seems dumbfounded, it may be time to look elsewhere. Of course, the law is complicated, but if your attorney cannot guide you through the basic process of buying or selling real estate, there is a very good chance that the attorney is not the best one for you.

Your Attorney Focuses His/Her Practice on Real Estate Law

While there are many attorneys who are licensed to practice various types of law, it is always best to hire an attorney who focuses on one or two types of law. Here at Friedman Schuman, many of our attorneys have a focus in real estate law. Just as you would not hire an electrician to fix your plumbing, you should not hire a family law attorney to help you purchase a home.

You Believe You Are in Good Hands

From the moment you step into your prospective attorney’s office from the moment you leave, you should feel comfortable with your attorney, and your attorney should leave you with a sense of confidence that he or she knows what they’re doing and that you are in good hands. Our firm will answer all of your questions, keep you in the loop every time a new development occurs, and we will ensure that we are right at your side through every step of the process so you never feel alone.

Your Attorney Maintains Strong Ratings on Google

As you know, solid ratings are critical for any business to become, and remain, successful in today’s day and age. Most people look up reviews of any given business or attraction before trying it out, and attorneys should be no different. Our firm maintains a 5-star rating on Google, so you can rest assured that we are dedicated to producing positive results on behalf of our clients.
