Real Estate

We are "Closing Attorneys" and advisers in residential and commercial real estate transactions. Our years of training and experience, combined with involvement in the local community, make our attorneys and staff uniquely qualified to provide title and closing services. In addition to the required legal nuances, we understand the importance of the personal touch involved in the process of purchasing, selling or refinancing a home or investment property.

As Closing Attorneys, we represent Buyers, Sellers, Lenders, Builders, Investors and Realtors in all types of real estate matters. From the inception of the real estate transaction to its completion, our attorneys and staff orchestrate the results our clients desire and expect. In a home purchase, for example, we gather the necessary information form the parties, review loan and contract documents, examine the land title, order and review surveys, prepare the appropriate legal documents, conduct the closing, collect and disburse funds, record deeds and provide title insurance-all while honoring the needs and requirements of each individual client.

We invite you to contact our office and experience the results you expect from your closing attorneys.

Probate Law and Estate Planning

The attorneys at Hotard & Hise can develop estate plans meeting your objectives. If you do not have a last will & testament or other estate planning mechanism, we highly recommend that you consult with one of our attorneys to protect and direct your assets pursuant to YOUR wishes.

If a family member has passed, with or without a last will & testament, we can facilitate the administration of the estate. Without the proper representation, this process can be bumpy and fraught with confusion and error that may ultimately penalize the rightful beneficiaries of estate assets. During this difficult time, let our experienced attorneys lead you through the process.
