Real Estate litigation is the same as civil litigation because the same process is followed by filing a Complaint, Answer, discovery, trial, etc. However, there are several additional issues which are unique to real estate law, such as filing a lis pendens which preserves your claim against the real estate ahead of other lenders, purchasers, or claimants. These additional real estate law issues require expertise which is often beyond the knowledge of other civil litigation attorneys.
Bankruptcy expertise is also invaluable in real estate litigation because filing bankruptcy can give either party tools which are not otherwise available. Bankruptcy stops collection efforts, including foreclosure. In addition, when bankruptcy is filed, litigation often goes through the bankruptcy court. Litigating your case in the bankruptcy court can be preferable to litigating in Arizona court or in federal district court because the cases tend to move along in a more expeditious fashion and different rules may apply.
