Real Estate

The purchase, sale and financing of real estate is a document-driven process that many, including experienced business people, find overwhelming. The Sanford Law Group advises clients in all types of transactions relating to commercial and residential real estate. Our lawyers serve individual homebuyers and sellers, property developers, brokers, lenders, construction contractors, landlords, tenants, and more.



The lawyers of the Sanford Law Group can help you with a variety of traffic citations. We can handle everything from routine speeding tickets to Impaired Driving charges. Your driving record directly impacts your cost of automobile insurance. Our years of experience of working with the Courts on behalf of our clients can help you save insurance premium dollars, and maybe your driver’s license.

Should you find yourself facing criminal charges, the team at Sanford Law Group is qualified and experienced to provide you legal counsel.


Business Organization

Starting a small business requires knowledge, experience, and a clear understanding of the different types of business entities, such as corporations, limited liability companies (LLC) and partnerships. We can work with you, your partners and accountants in determining the business structure to best suit your needs. We also have experience in business sales and dissolutions, asset sales, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements, as well as providing litigation services for collections and other business disputes. While technology has made it possible to take some of these steps by yourself, many of our clients have found it very beneficial and worthwhile to engage the services of a legal professional in these situations.



Unfortunately, the dissolution of a marriage usually has a serious and lasting impact, not only for the parties and family members but on family assets and businesses. Our family law attorneys have many years of experience in dealing with both the personal and financial costs of divorce. Child custody, child support, alimony, and property division can be complex both practically and legally. Our experienced domestic attorneys can help guide you through what is most often an emotionally and financially difficult time. We also have experienced business, real estate, and estate planning members of the firm on hand to assist in those areas.


Estate Planning

Families and business owners must plan for the future. Our attorneys are capable of assisting you in developing estate plans to protect you, your family and your assets in the event of death or disability. Whether you require a straightforward will, a trust to provide for your spouse and children, or a business succession plan, we can provide advice and guidance in achieving your estate planning goals. This is another area where people might be tempted to use inexpensive options readily available to create seemingly simple documents, but Sanford Law Group clients can have peace of mind that any document we prepare will hold up to scrutiny and ensure that your wishes are honored.



Separate from the estate planning process are the realities of dealing with the loss of a loved one. In addition to that emotional stress are the legal requirements regarding serving as Personal Representative and Executor of an Estate. This involves honoring the Last Will and Testament of the deceased, identifying and distributing assets, navigating the probate process and dealing with creditors. Sanford Law Group Attorneys have years of experience in estate probate and provide all the assistance you and your loved ones may need at a difficult time.
