Title Defects

Although it often appears simple, establishing ownership, easement and other rights with respect to real property can be one of the most complicated areas of the law.  Our firm has represented clients, including title companies, with respect to title defects in negotiations as well as in state, federal and appellate court.  From the interpretation of grants to railroad companies given over 170 years ago to understanding the exclusions of a title policy issued last year, our firm has considerable experience representing clients with respect to their real property rights.  This experience is also valuable in identifying potential issues with title when we advise clients on a potential purchase of real property.
