Real Estate and Investment Practice
Our real estate practice includes the representation of purchasers and sellers of condominiums, cooperative corporation apartments and private residential and vacation homes. Further, having represented a Bank in Mortgage Closings, having worked as a Closer for a Title Company, been appointed by various Judges to serve as a Court Appointed Referee concerning the Foreclosure of Property and having represented Buyers and Sellers in thousands of residential transactions, completely understands the details of a Real Estate, Cooperative or Condominium Transaction.
We will protect your financial interests in one of the most significant investments you will make during your lifetime. We welcome your telephone inquiries concerning our representation of you, so that you may learn more about the process, and how you can be guided through the process from inspections before the contract, the contract process, and the mortgage process - all leading to the closing of title.
Our representation does not end at the Closing. If you are a Seller, we can assist with post-closing issues, negotiate for time for you to remain in the house after the closing so that you have the funds from closing to purchase another residence, provide Escrow services to make sure that your funds are “clear” for the next purchase or other investment, provide a Will or Trust to protect your assets from Medicare and, as needed, arrange a consultation with a tax expert. If you are a Purchaser, we can assist with a referral to a Property Tax Reduction Attorney (certiorari reductions), clear up post-closing violations and zoning issues, review contracts for construction and building modifications and provide Will or Trust to protect your assets.
Your home is one of your biggest assets. You can protect that investment throughout the sale or purchase of a home by having an experienced real estate attorney at your side. Don't make the mistake of working with an attorney who dabbles in real estate. Slavin & Slavin’s real estate department concentrates in residential real estate transactions. Having legal counsel makes good business sense because of the complexities that come with real estate.
From the moment we begin working with you, our attorneys and staff are here to guide you throughout the process. Slavin & Slavin’s flat fee puts a real estate attorney in your corner from start to finish. Our services include:
* Explain the real estate transaction process
* Review listing or agency agreements
* Draft and review residential offers to purchase and counter offers
* Assist in the negotiations for the price

* Assist buyers and sellers through the property inspection and financing contingencies

He understands the responsibility of both the cyclist and the driver who may be involved in an accident.

Please take a look at our Bicycle Related web page.
The personal injury aspect of the practice includes the representation of individuals who have been seriously injured through the negligence of others in automobile, slip and fall, construction, elevator, dog bite and other tort matters.
We provide free consultation and work on a contingency base, which means there are no upfront costs to you and there is no fee to you until we recover money for you or win your case. Unlike your lawyer, insurance companies may not have your best interests at heart, even though they might tell you that they are. Insurance companies are more interested in the amounts they pay to injured people than they are in helping you get what you deserve for your injuries. We are experienced personal injury lawyers who know how to deal with the insurance companies. We have the knowledge and the strength to make sure that the insurance companies treat you fairly.
We conduct a detailed analysis of all cases and assist the Client in understanding the legal issues that are involved in their matter. Additionally, we make sure that the Client understands the nature of the damages that can be recovered in the Courts. Over the years we have developed close working relationships with many experts (engineering, construction, accident reconstruction, medical experts) who assist in the evaluation and litigation of these matters.
