    Client Review

    "We had a very complicated zoning case that required a lawyer to understand our situation quickly and address all the issues that we had. Frank was able to step up to the plate, provide an expert witness and protect our interests. We are very impressed in the way he handles himself in front of the zoning board and how prepared he was. He came to us highly recommended and we now know why. My partners and I would recommend him to anyone that needs any complicated legal matter resolved."

    Boundary Disputes

    If you are facing a residential or commercial boundary dispute, protect yourself and your property with the advice of a knowledgeable real estate lawyer. We understand the importance of protecting the title but the time-consuming and expensive nature of going to trial.

    We will analyze your unique case, including documents such as deeds, maps, plats, and surveys, as well as the circumstances of the dispute, the history of the property’s ownership, and any other relevant information. We strive to reach a settlement with the other party that protects your interests. However, if this is not possible, we will take the matter to court. Our extensive experience in boundary dispute litigation allows us to understand how the court may view your case and to present the evidence in a manner that provides you with the best chance of success.
