There are times when a business is best represented by a large, downtown Columbus, Ohio law firm. However, there are also times when a business is best served by employing a lawyer with a different type of practice. Business Lawyer James A. Zitesman offers personalized service to each business law client.

Do not rely upon real estate agents or brokers to represent you beyond buying or selling a home. If there is a problem, you need a real estate attorney to help explain and protect your rights, something real estate agents and brokers are not trained or licensed to do. A single mis-statement, although well intentioned, may have significant ramifications. Promptly retaining legal representation is key.

Litigation (lawsuits) involving real estate include breach of contract, failure to disclose conditions, liens, damage and destruction, and property (easement) rights. I have written an article discussing fraud in residential real estate transactions with respect to latent and patent defects and the duty to disclose pursuant to Ohio Law and the Residential Property Disclosure Form. If you think you have been a victim of a seller who did not disclose defects that they knew about, or even worse, covered up, you should read the article or just call Mr. Zitesman to discuss your situation.
If you are being sued, or being threatened to be sued, you need experienced real estate litigation counsel.
