At our full-service law firm Morrison, Ross and Whelan, our attorneys provide strong representation on behalf of real estate buyers, sellers and lenders in all types of complex real estate litigation.

Our real estate practice is led by partner Tom Ross, who has spent more than 30 years practicing real estate and business law in Virginia. Tom's comprehensive knowledge of the complexities of real estate law and our team's ability to represent you effectively in sensitive litigation makes him the best choice when you need legal representation for these matters in Northern Virginia.

We Have The Skills You Need To Get Positive Results

We offer a wide range of services in real estate litigation, including:

  • Cleaning up title defects for real estate transactions or transferring title to an heir: Having a defect on a title is just one way to scuttle a real estate transaction. We can do the research and make sure there are no liens against a property.
  • Partition actions: Dividing property among multiple owners can become quite contentious. We can help you negotiate a division of the property or a sale in which the owners split the proceeds.
  • Enforcing or defending purchasing contracts: If you are selling property, we will work hard to enforce the contract and make sure you are paid. If you are the buyer and the seller has violated the contract, we can defend you from breach of contract claims.

When property — whether commercial businesses, apartments, homes or undeveloped land — worth millions of dollars is on the line, you need the best legal representation to make sure your rights and interests are protected at trial or in settlement negotiations. Our lawyers can provide that for you. Contact Morrison, Ross and Whelan to learn more about our work in this area.
