Did you know…?

The dangers of social media and litigation.

Going through litigation is difficult. It is an expensive, lengthy and stressful process for all involved and it is tempting to want to vent your feelings in public, whether to sway public opinion or just to feel like you are keeping friends, family, and acquaintances informed. This can especially be true if you feel your opponent has treated you unfairly. However, if litigation is in your future, do yourself a favor and keep your thoughts about your case and your opponent between yourself and your lawyer. Public statements in forums like Facebook, can end your case before it even gets started. In the heat of litigation, or potential litigation, tempers can flare and posting comments about your thoughts can make you feel better in the short term, but if you wish to avoid the risk of damaging your case – mum is the word.

Did you know…?

In a series of short blog posts we will explore some things about our work here at Bergmann Law that many of our clients were surprised to learn. Maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised as well.

So… did you know…hiring a good real estate attorney means you might not have to attend closing?

Closings can be tough. Often scheduled in the middle of the day, it can take a lot of time on a day when things are already hectic and stressful. Perhaps it’s also moving day and your furniture, new house or storage unit are all that’s on your mind. Maybe you are moving in and just want to get your keys already!

This isn’t possible for all clients, especially buyers whose lenders often require attendance at closing, but in the event of a smooth transaction and a cooperative team of real estate professionals, the number of clients we have been able to close through the mail is on the rise.

We can often have closing documents sorted and in the hands of the title company in advance, meaning you don’t have to sit at the closing table drinking bad coffee, eating stale cookies and making painful small talk.

So, are you closing on a property and want to find out how we can make the process as painless as possible? Give us a call.
