General Practice

Westchester Criminal Defense Attorney
Beyond our area of expertise, we also offer quality legal representation in a variety of areas. If you are seeking legal representation in any of the listed areas below, call Michael Borrelli’s office for a consultation today.

Real Estate Closings

During a real estate closing, both the buyer and seller meet in one location to finalize the deal. It’s important to have legal representation present during the signing of all legal documents. As a Westchester lawyer, Borrelli will review all records before the closing, including the title, unpaid mortgages, liens, prior conveyances, and the deed. Having an attorney by your side during the buyer/seller payment process is the best way to avoid legal obstacles and difficulties. By the end of a successful real estate closing, the seller has received their payment and the buyer obtains their legal rights to their new property.

Landlord/Tenant

An attorney can be valuable to both landlords and tenants. An attorney can help a landlord draft a cohesive, enforceable lease that both the landlord and tenant follow. A tenant may hire an attorney if they feel their landlord has breached their agreement or has done something illegal concerning their living situation (typically concerning repairs). The most common areas that are discussed during landlord/tenant cases are leases, security deposits, evictions, and repair and deduct. If you have questions concerning these legal areas, call Michael Borrelli’s office today.

Wills

Preparing a Will and assigning an Executor is the best way to establish how your assets will be distributed after your passing. Wills are especially important for those with children. If you do not write a Will, your assets will be distributed according to state law, which you may be unhappy with. Wills can be difficult and worrisome since a lot is at stake. You may want to consider hiring an attorney to execute the process and ensure your wishes are honored.

Contract Law

A contract is a mutual agreement between two (or more) parties that can be enforced by law. A contract clearly outlines details of the transaction and serves to avoid any dispute or misunderstanding between the two parties. Reading a contract can be lengthy and meticulous, but an attorney experienced in contract law can save you time, energy and confusion.

Labor/Employment Law

Unfair labor practices against employees can take place in a number of ways. Illegal conduct in the workplace can include denial of equal pay, failure to hire, harassment, inappropriate sexual behavior, wrongful termination, unpaid wages, and employer retaliation. Michael J. Borrelii is dedicated to handling a variety of cases involving discrimination and illegal working conditions against employees.
