Addressing Every Real Estate Issue for You & Your Company

Our Monterey County real estate lawyers are experts in complex land use and zoning law matters, construction and title concerns, development permitting, state subdivision regulations, and complex project documentation and Williamson Act Contracts. Our real estate attorneys regularly handle all aspects of the Brown Act and Public Records Act compliance.

When you work with JRG, you will have the benefit of working with our local real estate lawyers throughout the process. By forging strong relationships with our clients, we can deliver exceptional representation and service. We explain all the material terms of the transaction as well as all of the rights and obligations under any proposed contract. Our real estate lawyers conduct the necessary due diligence so our clients are aware of all material information relevant to their situation. Our attorneys not only negotiate on your behalf but also make sure your contract adheres to all California laws and addresses any specific issues that might affect the future use of the property.

In addition, as a property owner, you may find yourself unexpectedly involved in a lawsuit or forced to defend a personal injury lawsuit without insurance. If you do not have insurance or your insurance company has refused to provide a defense, you need experienced legal representation. Our Monterey County real estate attorneys work to protect our clients from exposure to unanticipated liability.

No matter your real estate needs, our attorneys are ready to help. Call (831) 228-5619 today!
