Our handpicked team of attorneys offers real estate clients numerous advantages over competing law firms. In fact, perhaps no other Puget Sound law firm can match our combination of work quality and affordability in land-related legal matters.
The quality of our work stems largely from our attorneys’ backgrounds. To gain employment at Genesis, we must possess either outstanding academic credentials or an extended record of subject-area related achievement. No exceptions to this rule allowed. We are quite simply more selective in our lawyer recruitment than are most of our competitors.
Of the few equally selective firms, none that we know of enjoy more affordable hourly rates than Genesis. Cost-saving technologies allow us to charge rates approaching half that of other top-tier real estate lawyers in the greater Everett and Seattle region.
Are you entering into a long term lease and in need of someone to explain your obligations, liabilities and negotiation strategies? Are you a landlord with a tenant who has failed to pay rent or is causing problems at your property? We can efficiently guide you to get your leased property working the way it should.
Boundary disputes, including easement issues and adverse-possession, can be taxing emotionally and financially. We provide our clients with the guidance needed to resolve your easement or adverse possession issue both favorably and as cost efficiently. Initially we look for creative, win-win solutions to these disputes so as to avoid neighborhood feuds; but when necessary, we zealously litigate our clients’ cases in court. Notably, our rates and understanding of the law can make these disputes affordable to tackle.
Condemnation (Eminent Domain)
Eminent Domain is the government’s power to take private land and put it to a public use. In most cases, the government has the right to take the property it wants for a legitimate public use, whether the owner consents or not, but the government is required to pay just compensation. If you’re an owner whose property is being taken, it is important you bring someone on board to make sure that you receive the full amount of just compensation that you are owed.
