Due Dilligence

Sometimes I like to think that we attorneys take the simple and make it more complicated.  Much of this comes from our insistence on making sure we have things done right the first time.  On contracts and stipulations, you may think that we are worrying about clauses or modifications that are unnecessary, but you are paying an attorney to make sure that you are protected.  For example, when reviewing a contract of sale for a house, I usually include a purchaser’s rider of buyer protections.  A home is most people’s biggest investment of their lives, and I make sure to minimize the chances of something going awry.  I also make sure to scrutinize any divorce stipulations or company interest transfers.  Attention to detail is a difficult skill to learn but for my clients’ benefit I have developed it!
