    The Greater Williamsburg area is an exciting place to live and work, especially because of the large number of entrepreneurs who have built businesses from the ground up. These entrepreneurs have taken their passion and made it their profession. Many of us want to take that step. Before you begin, you need to think of the type of business entity you want to form. Our attorneys have extensive business experience, from small one-person companies to publicly traded major corporations. Our attorneys are among the leaders in Virginia in the representation of Common Interest Communities. These communities are generally referred to as "homeowners associations," or "HOAs," and "condominium associations." In the greater Williamsburg area alone, we provide legal assistance to nearly 100 associations. Our attorneys have successfully prosecuted and defended a wide array of civil disputes involving community association covenant enforcement, commercial transactions, construction disputes, contracts, real estate matters, boundary line and easement disputes, employment matters, antitrust litigation, copyright violations, administrative proceedings, and estate issues. Real Estate law encompasses a wide variety of matters, and our attorneys have vast experience to assist you. Whether you need assistance with a commercial or residential closing, or you have questions relating to residential or commercial leasing, we provide experienced advice and counsel to our clients. Zoning law can be a complicated maze of statutes and ordinances. We have ample experience in successful applications for rezoning, variance, and special use permit requests. Finally, commercial and residential construction provide special challenges with respect to financing issues and the construction process. We serve as counsel to various financial institutions.

What Should You Expect From Your Attorney?

I read a recent article in the ABA Journal that differentiated between the teaching of “issue spotting” versus “problem solving” in law schools. This article strikes at the core of the services we provide as attorneys. We believe firmly that although it is our responsibility to help identify potential issues that you may face, our legal advice is fully realized when we help you solve your problems.

By the time you come to an attorney, you already realize that you have an issue and that you want to accomplish a goal. Quite frankly, if you knew how to deal with the problem or achieve the goal, you would not spend time and money with an attorney. Therefore, your attorney’s major responsibility is help you figure out a strategy in order to meet your goal.
We want you to feel that when you leave our office or end our telephone conversation that you know more about your situation and that we are on our way to a solution. Of course it may take a few days for us to complete our research into the law and facts before we can fully answer your questions, but that is the nature of the law, especially when the goal is to problem solve. We can more easily identify the roadblocks you may face in reaching your goal, but that does not “move the ball” for you.
We offer our experience, knowledge, and compassion to accomplish your goals and keep you moving forward. Our objective is to enjoy a successful partnership where we are able to help you meet your goals. That is what you should expect from your attorney.
