When I needed an attorney to handle a real estate transaction that involved buying out two partners, I chose Jacque because I'd served on the board of a non-profit and was impressed with her work ethic, thoroughness and caring heart. As expected, she handled the situation impeccably, but it was when things threatened to go wrong when she truly shined. One of my partners had contract concerns which threatened to hold up the transaction and cost me thousands of dollars, I turned to Jacque for advice. She and I got on the phone with my partner and Jacque explained a complex element of the contract so well that she put my partner at ease and the transaction went through as planned. I refer her often, and will definitely call on her services again if I need her!

Devon was wonderful. Very responsive, helpful, GREAT quality work. He gave me a lot of advice, suggestions, and information that helped me enormously. Devon went "above and beyond" to make sure I understood everything, including items only a lawyer would know. Reasonably priced, and worth every penny, and more. Would highly, highly, highly recommend.

Errol was our attorney and helped us with our real estate/lease purchase contract where we had an option to buy the home. He won the case for us short of trial and we couldn't have done it without him. He knows law and real estate and we'd certainly recommend him. Wally & Kendra Giefski

    Will Koslow is the only attorney I would use for any complex real estate legal matter or transaction. He has helped me with multiple real estate purchases along with situations that have arisen during ownership. He is responsive, intelligent, and fair. He's one of the few lawyers that actually is a "deal maker" and acts as if he almost is invested with you... You will find no better attorney. You will not only get a person who actually cares, but one who has the tools to get the job done right every time.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good real estate lawyer?

      If buying or selling property feels overwhelming and the thought of finding a good real estate lawyer seems daunting, you’re in luck. There are some simple steps to follow for finding a trustworthy, affordable real estate lawyer to help with your property and legal needs.

      • Determine what kind of real estate lawyer you need. Many states require a real estate attorney to handle sale closing documents. For more complex matters such as a real estate deal gone awry or foreclosure, you’ll want to find an attorney who has successfully handled cases like yours.  
      • Look for online reviews of real estate lawyers in your area. Verify that they have proven experience closing or winning cases like yours and that they are in good standing with the state bar association.
      • Choose two or three lawyers to interview. Many offer a free consultation to learn about your case and provide information about rates. For standard real estate closing services, in-depth interviewing might not be necessary.
      • Ask about their rates and whether they charge by the hour or provide services for a flat fee. Ask whether a retainer is required, and what the total bill should be for a case like yours.
      • Ask for a write-up of the services that will be covered by the projected costs.
      • Make sure you like the real estate agent and they treat you with respect. Confirm whether they or another person will be working on your case and make sure you’re comfortable with all members of their team.
      • Pay the retainer and hire your lawyer.  

      What does a real estate lawyer do?

      A real estate lawyer represents their client’s best interest in all matters related to the sale, purchase and ownership of real estate. They are experts in real estate law. In states that require a real estate lawyer to close home sales, the lawyer must review and finalize all documents before the deal can be legally completed. Real estate lawyers also help clients legally protect their rights when entering, exiting or renegotiating a real estate deal. You can hire a real estate lawyer as an individual or as a business. A real estate lawyer can help with negotiation, addressing mortgage fraud, managing foreclosures and bankruptcy, transfers of titles and deeds, property ownership disputes, zoning issues, creating a co-ownership contract for joint purchase of a property, and much more. Real estate lawyers can also protect you from issues that result when a known problem was not properly disclosed by the previous owner. Overall, real estate lawyers are an added cost when it comes to buying and selling property, but they also ensure your best interests are met, and that you and the people you are doing business with comply with the law.

      Do I need a real estate lawyer?

      Whether you need a real estate lawyer depends on what kind of legal assistance you need. In many states (such as Vermont and Maine), you are required to hire a real estate lawyer to handle the closing documents of a home sale. The lawyer may prepare the deed, examine the title, review purchase and sale paperwork, work directly with the lender, and more. In title states such as California and Nevada, you do not need a real estate lawyer to buy or sell a home. Typically sales are handled by escrow agents, title companies or lenders. However, you may opt to hire a real estate lawyer to handle closing — even if it’s not required — to ensure your interests are protected.

      You may also need a real estate lawyer are when you are negotiating a large property purchase or development deal, or if you are declaring bankruptcy or have a property that’s going into foreclosure. If a property dispute has escalated beyond mediation, a real estate lawyer can advocate for your interests. If you prefer to remain (relatively) anonymous in property ownership, you may have a real estate lawyer represent you and negotiate deals for you. It can be a costly investment, with national average hourly rates ranging from $150 to $350 or more, but legal representation can offer peace of mind and protection of your financial interests.

      How much do real estate lawyers cost?

      The cost to hire a real estate lawyer depends on your needs. The national average cost for real estate lawyers ranges between $350 and $550, although prices can vary greatly based on the individual case. Many states, such as New York and Georgia, require that a real estate lawyer handle the closing documents when buying or selling a house. Real estate lawyers may have closing packages that start around $500 and go up. The packages may include deed preparation, title examination, review of purchase and sale paperwork, working with the lender, and more. For more complex cases, real estate lawyers may work on an hourly rate and require a retainer. Hourly rates for real estate lawyers may range from $150 to $300 or more. Geography can also affect your costs; attorneys’ rates will typically be lower on average in Georgia than in New York City.
