I work hard to understand your business’ situation and needs. I give you the analysis and advice you need to make the best decision for your company.

I have practiced commercial real estate law for more than 30 years, which means I’m well versed in the art of helping businesses navigate complex real estate laws as they buy, sell or lease property. Commercial property is one of the biggest investments your business will make, and the last thing you want is to feel as though you don’t have control throughout the process. That’s where my experience can help.

Processes such as investigating property titles, researching the best structure for your business, and determining the long-term consequences of the investment can help you make the right decision. But they do share one thing in common: They shouldn’t be approached lightly. I diligently work for your business by explaining your options, providing insightful perspective, and protecting your interests.

Commercial Real Estate Attorney in Austin, TX

More than 40 years of experience

Commercial real estate is unique from residential real estate. Whereas the typical real estate purchase will involve one individual or family selling a house to another, commercial real estate must also account for the long-term needs and circumstances of the businesses involved. It should come as no surprise, then, that you wouldn’t want to hire just any attorney to help you through the process of buying or selling property for your business. 

Over the course of my career, I have developed a full understanding of how businesses operate and use that understanding in my representation of clients on commercial real estate transactions.  My practice involves all aspects of commercial real estate.  I have the knowledge and experience to represent and protect your short term and long term interests in a sale, purchase or lease of commercial real estate.

I have lived in Austin, Texas since 1984, and I have practiced law in Texas for more than 40 years. I’ve helped businesses draft management, consulting, service, licensing, and distributorship agreements. I’ve also helped businesses buy, sell, and lease a wide range of commercial properties. I can use my knowledge and experience to your advantage.

My office on Spicewood Springs Road is easily accessible in the Austin area and the surrounding communities. I’ve served businesses in locations throughout the Austin area, including Pflugerville, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Bee Cave, Lakeway, Dripping Springs, Buda, Bartrop, and Cedar Creek. I’ve represented both local businesses and businesses based in other states that are doing business in the Austin area.

I want to earn your respect, and I can’t do that by providing poor service and lackluster representation. Throughout an engagement, I will work to accomplish your goals and earn your trust and approval. Schedule a consultation today.
