I hired Mr. Rose February 2017 to help my brother who was being evicted from his apartment. He responded very quickly to my calls and e-mails and was very professional. He was very thorough in explaining the court process, his knowledge of landlord/tenant laws, and what my brother’s options were. Thank you very much for all your help.

I found Fisher Stone after doing a web search looking for lawyers who could help me in writing up the contracts for my business. From the first phone call I knew that I had picked the right lawyers for me. They were extremely helpful in answering all of my questions, and never made me feel like a nuisance for random calls with new concerns. Both Mr. Fisher and Mr. Stone are very personable, making them enjoyable to work with. I plan on going to them if I have any other business contracts to write up

Things turned out waaaaayy better than I hoped in my court case. She's busy a lot of the time but she always calls back. Other than that, no compalints.

I reached out to the law offices of Lau & Nicolello when I was faced with a 20-something page hiring contract that was beyond overwhelming. After reaching out to Mr. Nicolello, I was given fast advice & he helped me understand the document, raised a few things for me to ask my new employer about and I left the meeting with a wealth of knowledge. I would recommend these lawyers for any type of contract review as the language in legal documents is so complicated and their version of communicating the information was so easy to follow. Highly recommend and reasonably priced!!

Courteous, Professional, and Collaborative. The cost was more than fair, and the best part about the firm is that they truly work as a team and know how to efficiently manage their roles. It is not just one single lawyer working on your account. A reply was always received timely and they work great by email. Thank you to everyone in the Team! Thank you to Ryan, Melissa, Jonathan, Sam, and Francisco. A special thanks to Francisco for the last minute scheduling efforts, and keeping me abreast of the situation real time. Thank you also for reaching out to all the parties persistently for updates and detailed information for the closing logistics.

About

Linares Associates PLLC is an international law firm and its practice is directed largely to companies wishing to operate commercially on the Italy-US axis. We offer the Italian and the American entrepreneur a wide range of services that allow companies, be they pre-existing or in formation, to reach their commercial objectives in full. Linares Associates provides specific legal assistance also to those companies interested in establishing their business activities in one of the European Union Member States and in those emerging new markets, such as China, India, and South America, where we cooperate with a number of selected domestic firms. At Linares Associates, we have accumulated a wide experience in assisting both Italian and foreign companies. This has given us a deep knowledge and understanding of the multi-faceted issues that each company must face in managing its commercial activities abroad. In the key cities of the North and South America, Europe, China and India, Linares Associates has an established network of correspondents who are reliable and have a long-standing experience in their field of professional specialization. With this network, we can operate directly on each territory and guarantee our clients immediate and high-quality assistance. At the same time we manage everything centrally from our firm, thus protecting our clients from the uncertainties of searching for professional help on-site, bypassing the common communication problems and, above all, avoiding excessive and unexpected cost. Linares Associates is active in all the different aspects of International Business Law, including: i) Corporate Law and Immigration Procedures We follow our clients through all phases of their business activities abroad and in Italy: from choosing the company structure that best suits their needs and the State that can give them the best fiscal advantage, to the actual formation and operation of the company, including accounting, tax management (drafting of annual balance sheets, filing tax returns, payroll operations and related tax reports) and preparing and filing the papers required to obtain resident permits and work visas. ii) Contracts Another area that we manage with great care is the whole arena of business contracts, including agency and distributorship agreements, sales contracts, franchising and joint-venture agreements, trademark license agreements, confidentiality agreements, memorandum of understanding, and residential and commercial lease agreements. We know how crucial and difficult the negotiation of a contract can be for a company wishing to do business with a foreign partner. Our ability to interact with foreign companies and individuals, speaking their same language and, more importantly, having their same legal background, allows us to draft a document that can guarantee the achievement of the commercial objectives set out by the client at the negotiation stage. iii) Real Estate We assist our clients in the delicate operation of purchasing, selling or leasing residential and/or commercial real estate properties in the United States and in Italy, providing general corporate and estate planning advice to individuals and companies. iv) Product Liability Product liability and the complex laws regulating its application, is another area that Linares Associates has examined and investigated over the years. In particular, we have elaborated several different contract clauses limiting the liability of manufacturers exporting products abroad, and that can be easily included in contracts and sales forms. We have also identified a series of indications and warnings that can be precious to the foreign entrepreneur wishing to distribute its products in the USA. v) Patent and Trademark Registration Patent and Trademark are of strategic importance for a company wishing to invest on a competitive foreign market. It is essential to set up adequate protection to prevent acts of counterfeiting or unfair competition. This is why our firm offers focused and specialized consulting in the phase of patent and trademark registration in the US, Canada, Europe, China, India and South America. We closely examine the specific issues related to the patent and trademark for which protection is being sought, we perform comprehensive search in the territory and in product classes involved, we issue an opinion on the practicability of patent and trademark protection, and we file registration with the competent State or Federal authorities. vi) Debt Collection Our firm can also assist its clients in the delicate operation of debt collection in the United States, Italy, European Union, China, India, and South America: from drafting basic Demand Letters, to the more complex preparation of lawsuits, filing papers with the courts having jurisdiction on the particular case, notifications in the foreign countries and management of any contingent legal actions. Linares Associates also offers specialized consulting on the effect and recognition in Italy and in the United States of foreign judgements in light of the most recent international private law reforms.

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.
