My siblings and I inherited our parents’ cabin, and we can't agree on how to manage it. Now what?

Typically, our first goal is to help you resolve issues cooperatively as a family. We can help you explore mediation, buy out options, or an amicable sale of the property. But sometimes that becomes impossible, and legal action is the only way forward. Some owners opt to file a partition lawsuit requesting a court-ordered sale or division of the property interest. We handle co-ownership disputes and can help you understand your options.

I run a business, and my landlord isn't maintaining the premises. What can I do?

As a tenant, you have legal rights if your landlord fails to properly maintain the premises. Carefully document issues in writing and take photographs. Send notice requesting repairs under your lease terms. If problems continue, we can help you consider next steps such as withholding rent, terminating the lease, or suing for breach of contract.

What constitutes a “construction defect”?

Construction defects refer to deficiencies or shortcomings in the building, design or construction of real estate improvements like homes or commercial buildings. Construction defect issues may involve soil movement, water intrusion, foundation cracks, environmental issues, underground utilities, and mold, as well as plumbing, electrical and HVAC issues.

We represent owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, construction companies, architects, design professionals and other parties that may be involved in construction defect disputes.

What is “non-disclosure of material defects”?

Non-disclosure of material defects refers to a seller failing to reveal issues or problems that affect the value or desirability of a property. That may include defects like structural damage, foundation cracks, pest infestations, plumbing leaks or environmental hazards. Sellers have a duty to disclose all material facts. Failing to do so can constitute fraud or misrepresentation in some cases. An attorney can help prove non-disclosure and pursue appropriate remedies.
