Practice Areas


In addition to providing legal help with commercial and residential real estate transactions, we assist families with estate planning issues and help them create legal documents that will address their wishes both during a person's life and after their death. We also help executors or estate representatives complete the probate process successfully, and we assist individuals and families who are involved in guardianship proceedings.

Residential Transactions


Residential ClosingsFor buyers and sellers alike, a residential closing involves several important steps. We can guide you through each of them, including negotiation of your purchase agreement, arrangement of a home inspection and damage repairs, review of mortgage agreements and title searches, and preparation of closing documents. If your credit score or income is an issue, we can help you work with multiple lenders to find one that works for you. We will also be there on Closing Day to ensure it goes according to plan and to celebrate a successful result.

Commercial Transactions


Commercial ClosingsCommercial real estate owners invest significant resources in multi-unit apartment buildings and other properties with the expectation of earning income from them. We can help you solidify your investment as we guide you through the process of your commercial closing, including contract negotiation, signing authority for legal entities, escrow, review of zoning and environmental regulations, transfer of ownership, and assumption of leases. We also help sellers negotiate a fair transaction and respond to any buyer inquiries about the property.

It's Closing Day, Baby!

Estate Planning


By planning for the future, families can avoid confusion and uncertainty while addressing their present and future needs. We can help create wills that specify a person's wishes for what should happen after their death. We can also work with families to create powers of attorney for healthcare and property, ensuring that a person's needs will be met if they become incapacitated, as well as living wills and medical directives that address the care a person should receive if they are terminally ill.

Probate / Decedent Estates


In the event of a family member's passing, we can provide legal help with decedent estates administration and the process of probate. The executor named in a person's will or the person who is appointed as the representative of the estate will need to take an inventory of the decedent's assets, pay debts and taxes, and ensure that all property is distributed to the decedent's heirs. We can provide invaluable assistance during this process, ensuring that the decedent's wishes are honored and that all beneficiaries are properly provided for. We can provide representation in cases involving litigation of contested wills or estates, and we can ensure that all requirements are met in passing down inheritances to a decedent's minor children. Our top priority is helping families find peace in the wake of their loss.

Guardianships


While guardianship can provide many benefits, there are a number of requirements that will need to be met, and the proper procedures must be followed to establish legal guardianship in probate court. The The Law Offices of Marques A. Eason, LLC can assist with these types of cases. We will ensure that you understand your rights as a legal guardian and the ongoing requirements that you will need to meet. We will also help address any concerns that may arise related to a person's rights to make decisions for themselves, and we will advise you about any issues that may affect your case in the future.
