Real Estate Law in Hartford

Committed Real Estate Lawyer Proudly Representing Hartford Residents

Real estate law can be complex. Whether your case involves refinancing, foreclosure, modification, purchase and sale agreements, or involves residential or commercial property, it’s wise to work with a knowledgeable real estate attorney to ensure that your best interests are protected at every stage of the process. Since 1995, I’ve proudly represented Hartford residents and helped them successfully resolve their real estate law matters.

Residential & Commercial Properties

Since Connecticut’s real estate laws vary depending upon whether the property in question is residential or commercial, I’m here to help you understand the specifics of your situation so that you can made informed decisions with confidence. My goal is to ensure that you have all the information you need in order to successfully navigate the transaction.


In Connecticut, foreclosures are typically carried out either by sale—in which a court orders you home to be sold, and the proceeds are paid to the foreclosing party—or by strict foreclosure, where the court transfers the title to your home directly to the foreclosing party. Neither situation is easy, and I’m here to provide you with trusted and compassionate legal guidance so that you can know what to expect from the process. Together, we will make sure that you achieve the best outcome possible given the circumstances of the situation.

Purchase & Sale Agreements

A purchase and sale agreement is a binding legal document that, once signed, is difficult to break. As these transactions often involve large sums of money, it’s highly advised to seek reliable legal counsel before jumping into a situation from which you cannot easily escape. As your real estate attorney, I can help you understand the terms of the agreement so that you can make your decision with confidence.


The closing costs associated with a real estate transaction are typically incurred by the buyer and often exceed the purchase price of the property. Closing costs may include title insurance, property taxes, administrative fees, escrow and/or closing day charges, and other fees. Reach out to my office to discuss your situation so that you can ensure that your best interests are protected throughout each phase of the real estate transaction.

Refinancing & Modifications

There are many reasons why you may want to modify or refinance your mortgage, such as receiving a lower rate, switching from a variable to a fixed-rate loan, or lowering your monthly payment. I’m here to help you accurately estimate the closing costs associated with your mortgage, as these will directly impact your mortgage loan amount.
