We have proven experience assisting clients to resolve legal issues in the following areas:
Real Estate: In our real estate practice, our lawyers routinely help clients with
residential real estate closings.
We understand the frustrations often encountered with buying or selling a home and use our expertise to build strong
relationships with realtors, lenders, and mortgage brokers to complete timely and efficient transactions. We also
have experience assisting clients with commercial real estate transactions
related to sale of small businesses. We
understand the difference between a simple asset purchase and sale from a more complicated sale of assets that includes
real property, and are ready to assist clients with these types of commercial business transactions. In addition, our
attorneys have experience with purchase and sale of multi-family properties where landlord tenant issues and ongoing

and S-corporations where ownership and division of property claims are a primary issue in a divorce case. In addition
to legal expertise, Ms. Hipple has business training (M.B.A.) and significant prior financial services industry
experience, which is often critical to understanding complicated issues related to valuation of assets, liabilities,
