Real estate litigation may involve office buildings, apartment buildings, retail centers, and specialty properties.

At the law firm of Cavett, Abbott & Weiss, clients are in the best of hands. Take the past work of Mr. Cavett, for example. This civil litigation attorney represents numerous title industry underwriters such as Stewart Title, Old Republic Title, and First American. Rest assured that our law office can tackle disputes that involve negligent disbursements of a construction loan, fraudulent transfers/mortgage satisfactions, and liens/lien priority issues.
  5. Materialman’s liens – Note that a materialman’s lien gives a security interest in the property to someone who supplies materials used during work performed on the property. The purpose behind giving lien rights to contractors and subcontractors is that they should have great rights and a better chance of collecting debt compared to another party because their materials actually increased the value of the owner’s real property.
  6. Mechanics’ liens – These liens are legal claims against property that’s been remodeled or improved. Often used by subcontractors and suppliers, mechanics’ liens on your property can prevent you from selling your property or even getting a loan.

Civil litigation encompasses a wide range of areas. But that doesn’t mean finding the right civil litigation attorney should be difficult.
