"In addition to helping us understand key lease provisions from the perspectives of both parties, Dean provided great practical advice on how best to accomplish our objectives. Service was prompt and professional."

Dr. Brent Felix   


"Dean provided excellent assistance with the sale of our house, allowing us to save thousands on commissions. We really appreciated his flexibility, especially making sure everything was taken care of in the last few days before the closing. He provided helpful guidance throughout the transaction, and it was a pleasure to work with him."

Patrick Willke (FSBO client) 


"Our lease review was thorough and our consultation with Dean put to rest some specific concerns we had about our lease. We plan to call on him again in the future."

One of our 'signature' services is our Commercial Lease Review:

When you hire us: (1) the attorney, either on the phone or in person, will discuss your business and your lease with you; (2) the attorney will review and revise your lease; (3) the attorney will provide you with comments and suggestions regarding your lease; and (4) the attorney, either on the phone or in person, will review the lease revisions, comments and suggestions with you. 

This service helps clients to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their lease, and to identify and resolve important terms that are missing, inadequate or that should be revised to give the client appropriate protections and a foundation for a successful business. Clients may want us to assist them further by negotiating the provisions of the lease, thereby improving the terms of their agreement. We are experienced and skilled in these areas and gladly offer our services.

Unfortunately contract disputes are common. If you have an existing lease, purchase agreement, or other contract and need an attorney to review it and advise you with respect to your rights we can help. Fortunately in many instances disputes can be resolved without litigation. If litigation is necessary, we will discuss the process, and the associated costs and benefits with you, and advise you as to the best approach to take.
