Real Estate Matters and Tax Assessment Appeals

For many years our firm has served as counsel for a number of private individuals and commercial land developers. Because of this, we’ve developed expertise in all aspects of real estate. Attorney McGrail has over 30 years of experience with regard to residential and commercial real estate transactions. This experience includes  negotiating and preparing the precise documents required to effectively complete both real estate transactions and litigation issues. Our firm utilizes computer software that was designed specifically for real estate transactions, providing all clients with precise accounting and documentation for these transactions. In addition, our staff has developed long-standing business relationships with various sources that help to provide any additional resources, such as title examinations and title insurance.

McGrail & Associates, LLC provides legal advice to commercial property owners and to commercial lessees with regard to complex and long term leasing issues.  We are familiar with national retail lease documents, as well as leasing issues for “mom and pop” businesses.
