Our attorneys' expertise in business transactions and litigation extends to this practice area, which requires experienced legal assistance and in-depth knowledge of California's property and taxation laws. With decades of real estate experience, we regularly help clients achieve favorable, efficient results.

Real estate issues involve numerous areas of law. Our law firm has the depth of experience and the legal knowledge inside and outside the courtroom to both create beneficial agreements and resolve complex disputes. We assist clients with a wide range of real estate matters, including:

  • Purchases

A successful real estate practice typically requires continual interaction with various real estate professionals and experts, ensuring prudent decisions on behalf of the client. We represent a wide variety of clientele, including architects, developers, investors, contractors, and real estate brokers, as well as land owners, investors, buyers, landlords, and tenants. When entering land sale or lease contracts, we meticulously evaluate our clients' options and allow them to make an informed decision regarding these important agreements.

When a real estate transaction results in a legal dispute, Jones & Lester offers representation rooted in thorough preparation and investigation. Our real estate attorneys often facilitate alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation to promote solutions that are less time-consuming and costly. In the event litigation is unavoidable, however, we are prepared to vigorously advocate for our clients' rights in court. In many situations, our distinguished trial reputation and aggressive pursuit of our clients' claims will result in a favorable settlement that remains cost-effective for our clients.

Whether a client is purchasing a residence or entering into a complex commercial real estate agreement, retaining an experienced real estate attorney is vital to entering a contract that matches the client's intent and minimizes the threat of future litigation. A poorly drafted contract creates a material dispute that can destroy the transaction's intended benefit and lead to devastating financial consequences for a client's business. Jones & Lester can mitigate the impact of a clients' real estate dispute on their financial security. We offer clients the opportunity to obtain sound and profitable real estate solutions.
