FAQs

WHAT PEOPLE
ARE ASKING

1. What is litigated property?

Litigated property is property that has been involved in legal matters, such as issues over ownership or encroachment. It is property that is under litigation. In some cases, this property’s value will be significantly lower than its ready reckoner value. Litigated property can also be treated differently regarding tax matters. An attorney can examine the options buyers and sellers have regarding litigated property, and can help with computing the capital gains on such properties.

2. What are common issues that arise in real estate litigation?

There are many reasons for real estate litigation, including:

  • Breach of contract: If either party involved in a contract fails to perform according to its terms, the wronged party can recover compensation for damages.

  • Failure to disclose a problem or defect: If a seller fails to disclose, it can result in real estate litigation.

  • Breach of duty: Real estate agents must act in the best interests of their clients and if he or she does not do so, it can result in breach of duty litigation.

  • Implied warranties: If either an express or an implied warranty is breached, it can result in a civil lawsuit.

3. How long will real estate litigation take?

The length of time it takes to resolve real estate litigation varies from case to case. It is common for a real estate lawsuit to take years to resolve, in part because of the discovery process and the motions that are filed before the case officially goes to trial. Many real estate lawsuits are settled before reaching trial via mediation or other form of ADR, while others are simpler and move through the system within a few months.

As an experienced Real Estate and Business Attorney, my goal is to avoid the Courthouse and achieve a prompt, smooth and fair resolution of the issues for everyone involved

With more than 20 years of legal experience and many more years of business and real estate experience before that, I know the ins and outs of development projects. I work closely with my clients to draft contracts that meet their needs and anticipate challenges. I am a commercial real estate appraiser who can give you insight into the evaluation process and inform you of potential factors that can affect your investment’s value. I routinely handle cases involving land development, acquisition and developing, zoning, title issues, and homeowner associations. I represent developers, investors, homeowners associations, and other parties involved in the real estate industry.

I also provide business legal services to clients throughout Indiana, assisting them with every stage of their business from formation to dissolution. I consult with my business clients to determine the best legal entity for their business, based on their desired level of protection from personal liability and tax treatment. This allows me to structure the business as a partnership, corporation, LLC, or other entity. I also draft contracts by applying best practices and modify or terminate them to serve my clients’ needs. As a successful business owner myself, commercial clients throughout Indiana turn to me for guidance and business advisory services.

If a dispute does arise in the real estate or business context, I can provide sound legal advice and representation to my clients. With a background as a successful mediator and several successful ADR cases, I can often fulfill my clients’ objectives while avoiding the expense and frustration of prolonged litigation that can jeopardize your business’ future.

With a long history of successful outcomes, including several victories on the appellate level, clients trust me to capably and confidently handle their cases.
