Real estate ownership between multiple parties can be structured in a myriad of ways ranging from relatively simple to very complex. The form of ownership structure can often dictate whether a particular transaction is possible as well as the ongoing relationships between the various parties. However, even when co-owners agree, the ownership of the property may be jeopardized due to title issues (see also: Escrow/Title Company Issues).

When Disputes  Arise: 
Represents You in Alternative Dispute Resolution or Litigation

The first thing you need to know when confronting a legal dispute is where you stand in relation to the other parties. San Jose real estate lawyer Mike Hogan will give you an honest and realistic evaluation of your rights and responsibilities as well as the associated risks so that you fully understand the legal ramifications of your particular situation, including your chances of success.

Although litigation is always an option, it should be one of last resort as it is often the most expensive path to resolution. Instead, with your consent, Mike first seeks out a negotiated settlement to your dispute through negotiation and, if necessary, use of alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation or arbitration which often provide quicker and more cost effective dispute resolution when compared to litigation.

In the event that negotiation and alternative dispute resolution fail, leaving litigation as the only means to resolution, it is critical that it be done with the services of an aggressive attorney, one who will relentlessly represent your interests. San Jose real estate lawyer Mike Hogan will provide you with such representation.
