Kolb Law

Welcome to the Law Offices of David A. Kolb, P.C.

At the Law Offices of David A. Kolb, P.C. we realize that no attorney can competently handle matters in every area of legal practice. While this is a General Practice firm that deals with a wide range of legal matters, our practice is concentrated in four major practice areas: Divorce and Family Law, all types of Injuries, Residential Real Estate and Homeowner Associations.

We realize that it can be a bewildering and an overwhelming experience for an individual who does not already have connections in the legal system to find an appropriate attorney to handle a particular legal matter. If you need legal help in an area we do not handle, rest assured we can assist you by referring you to another attorney who concentrates their practice in your area of need.

Real Estate

The time to hire a real estate attorney is not the day before the closing. If you are selling your home, purchasing a home or investing in a second home or commercial property, one of the most important tasks to attend to as soon as possible is the hiring of an experienced Real Estate Attorney. Before you sign any documents, consult with our office.

A real estate transaction is probably the single largest financial transaction most people will be involved with over the course of their lives. The issues are complex and a mistake can cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. Don't be bound to a contract you signed without first consulting your lawyer. You must exercise the Attorney Approval Clause. There may be no way to modify unfavorable terms after the contract has been signed.

Your real estate agent does not represent you. Neither does the mortgage broker or the title company agent. None of these necessary individuals are working for you or looking out for your best interests. An experienced real estate attorney will prepare and review all documents ensuring your best interests are protected. Speak with a lawyer. Schedule a free initial in-office consultation to discuss your real estate transaction and the options available to you. We specialize in solving problems!
