Real Estate Litigation

Real Estate litigation is similar to Commercial Litigationin many aspects in that the same process is followed in terms of filing a complaint, answer, discovery, trial, etc. It differs in several material aspects in that there are issues which are unique to real estate law (such as filing of a lis pendens which preserves your claim to the property ahead of other claimants) which require real estate expertise which is often beyond the experience of other attorneys.

Bankruptcy expertise is often invaluable in real estate litigation because filing bankruptcy can give either party tools which are not available outside of bankruptcy, and bankruptcy also stops collection efforts, including foreclosure. In addition, litigation in the bankruptcy court is sometimes preferable to litigating in superior or district court because the cases tendto move along in a more expeditious fashion.
