Streamlining the Real Estate Transaction Process

  • Initial consultation: We’ll identify the merits and challenges of your situation and map the path forward, including realistic assessments of the likely timeline and costs.
  • Representation: Ashwell & Ashwell represents your interests, reviewing documents, negotiating terms and winning concessions. If litigation is involved, we prepare the case—and you—so we both walk into court, confident that we are ready.
  • In court: Count on our absolute professionalism and proven performance. And, because we know the negative way judges, arbitrators and juries view aggressive attorneys, you can also count on us to use the power of civility to win your case greater credibility and, likely, a better outcome.
