Attorney Jerry Sanchy is additionally experienced in estate tax planning and can advise you on the implications of the different approaches you may take with your estate plan. Our firm further assists in probate and trust administration, including the resolution of any will contests or other probate litigation which may arise.
Foreclosure Defense – If you are facing the loss of your home through foreclosure, our goal is to get you in the best position to remove yourself from a bad situation with the best result possible. We employ a variety of strategies to defend a wrongful foreclosure in court, or to negotiate a positive outcome with the lender, such as a loan modification with a reduction in principal, a short sale or a short payoff.
Business Transactions – We focus on providing small business owners with sound legal advice and professional assistance to help them grow their business and meet their legal needs in the most complex and sophisticated business dealings. From commercial financing to purchase and sale, we work to negotiate, draft and review contracts and other documents to make sure your rights are protected and your interests are met.

We provide intelligent and skillful assistance in drafting wills & trusts, including estate tax planning and representation in probate administration or litigation. We help struggling homeowners obtain a loan modification or short sale, or fight a wrongful foreclosure in court.
