My Approach to Practicing Real Estate Law

I’ve always gravitated towards transactional practice on account of its many opportunities to serve clients and work collaboratively rather than adversely with other Counsel. I see transactions as an opportunity to guide firm performance and client expectation through those benchmarks of success that give the client the results for which they’ve bargained. I’ve found that my strengths in representation are most accessible to my clients through a personal and congenial approach as the same I’ve found to be the practice of our entire team at Minchella & Associates, Ltd
