Areas of Law Description
Holtz Mahshie DeCosta, P.A. represents clients on the following areas of practice:
- Real Estate
Our firm provides Ft. Myers, Sanibel, Port Charlotte and greater southwest Florida with transactional real estate services covering all aspects of commercial and residential real estate. We assist our clients with the development, leasing, sale and purchase of commercial and residential real property. Our depth and breadth of experience allows us to develop both sophisticated and practical solutions to our clients' needs, and we have successfully represented a wide range of clients, including condominium boards, in a variety of commercial and residential real estate transactions.
- Commercial Litigation
We provide counsel and guidance on a full range of legal issues, including the setting up and structuring of operations and transactions to minimize litigation risks. As part of our initial evaluation, we assist our clients in determining whether alternative dispute resolution might be a more efficient tool to achieving our client’s objectives over traditional litigation in the judicial system.
We are committed to providing full service counseling and representation on construction related matters and disputes at industry competitive pricing. We strive to provide strategic planning and advice for our clients and tailor our services to the needs of the client. Our clients include general contractors, subcontractors, and developers on projects of varied size and complexity.
In the face of incessant calls from debt collectors, the threat of foreclosure or other legal action, your situation may seem overwhelming. Bankruptcy is not for everyone, but it is important to consult with a competent bankruptcy attorney to find out if it is an appropriate solution for you. We will evaluate your case and work with you towards a resolution of your debts that fits your individual needs.
- Community Association
Through the course of its representation, the firm provides its community association clients with updates regarding changes in the statutory and regulatory schemes governing community associations, maintains accessibility for practical and cost efficient guidance on day to day issues, and communicates with clients in a timely and consistent basis.
