Richard’s first 10 years as an attorney were largely spent representing Fidelity National Title Insurance Company in land title litigation throughout the state. We have litigated, drafted, negotiated, and interpreted hundreds of issues relating to contracts of sale, title, mortgages, easements, licenses, and just about every other issue involving real estate. We have represented homeowners in the purchase of their “starter house,” and we have prepared the documentation for the sale and lease of multi-million dollar commercial properties. We have successfully defended foreclosure in the residential and commercial context (although we no longer defend residential foreclosures), and we have litigated substantial commercial lease issues on behalf of landlords and tenants. As a litigator, we have seen first-hand what works and does not work in the drafting of contracts, and if there is a problem, we are not a mere “negotiator” who is afraid to go to court to meet a challenge to a contract.
