Residential real estate transactions are regulated by state law and can involve a number of issues, such as easements, property lines, known and unknown faults with the home or the land. A home purchase is a contract between buyer and seller so other legal issues may be involved.
Some states require a lawyer to be involved in the sale of a home. But even if your state does not have that requirement, it is still in your best interest to consult an Edgartown residential real estate lawyer. The lawyer can review the sales contract and the deed to prevent a legal issue arising later.
In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.
The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.
For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
