Areas of Practice
Residential Real Estate Sales
Buying or selling a home is probably the most significant financial transaction one is involved in during their life. Having an attorney, skilled in residential sales, is key to making sure this process goes smoothly. I represent buyers and sellers in all aspects of the transaction, from drafting a Sales Agreement, negotiating through the inspections process, drafting Addendums to reflect changes to the Agreement, and helping parties satisfy closing conditions to get to get the property sold.
Property Assessment Appeals
In Western Pennsylvania, your property taxes are based off of the assessed value of your home. That value is suppose to align to the market value. The parties to an appeal, the taxing authorities and the homeowner, have different ideas of the market value of the property. The lower the value, the lower your taxes are. Having a competent attorney represent you at the appeal hearing ensures that the right evidence is presented to help you lower your assessed value and save you money.
