Real Estate Law: Why Professional Legal Guidance Matters
For many people, real estate is the most valuable asset they own, whether a home, vacation property, rental property or undeveloped acreage. It’s no surprise that the stakes are high when it comes to buying or selling property. Any type of real estate transaction can jeopardize your interests — and derail even the best-laid plans — if done improperly.
New York is an attorney state, which means that legal advice is not only critical but also required in real estate transactions. The result of your deal? That depends on which attorney you hire. We have successfully handled hundreds of transactions.
The Dangers Of “Do-It-Yourself” Services
The internet makes it easy to underestimate the risk involved in handling complex legal matters on your own. Protecting your interests — and getting the best deal possible — involves much more than filling out cookie-cutter forms. “Do-it-yourself” services such as Zillow, Trulia and LegalZoom are no substitute for experienced and individualized legal counsel.
A Better, More Cost-Effective Alternative
It is well worth the investment in professional legal guidance upfront to avoid greater losses down the road. At Duggan Pawlowski & Cooke LLP in Buffalo, New York, you will find experienced legal guidance at affordable rates.
