Attorneys at the Houston law firm of Orlando & Orlando, L.L.P. maintain a vigorous practice in real estate law, representing mortgage companies in replevins, collections, foreclosures, evictions, and creditor representation in the bankruptcy courts. Our lawyers are also involved in advising business and corporate clients on real estate and construction issues, including the full range of transactional and litigation matters.
We advise builders, developers, and materialmen on the variety of legal issues related to real estate development and the construction industry, and negotiate, draft, and review the documents involved in real estate transactions. As experienced litigators, we understand that preparing documents right from the start is the best way to avoid future disputes. In addition, sound, well-crafted legal documents also put clients in a stronger position in the event litigation does arise.
Real estate development requires a significant investment of time and financial resources, and the involvement of many different parties, including buyers, sellers, banks, architects, contractors, subcontractors, and materialmen. It is not surprising, therefore, that disputes inevitably arise as to the performance or interpretation of a contract or other agreement. As experienced litigators, we help investors and developers resolve these disputes as swiftly as possible, whether concerning such matters as title defects, property lines, boundaries, easements, buy-sell agreements, quiet title suits, or suits for specific performance.
Our experience in bankruptcy law includes representing debtors and creditors in Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcy proceedings. A large part of our work in this area of law involves asserting and protecting creditors' rights in bankruptcy to secured property. We also assist creditors in recovering on their property in other ways, such as through replevin, foreclosure, eviction, and other methods of debt collection.
