Real Estate Litigation

Because Key West is such a popular spot for vacationers and part-time residents, real estate transactions are extremely common. However, buying and selling homes and commercial property can present complicated legal matters that an attorney can help explain, such as:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Failure to Disclose Latent Defects
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Breach of Real Estate Contract
  • Water Rights
  • Liens
  • Breach of Contract for Sale or Rent

Environmental and Land Use Litigation

Because Key West is home to such a fragile and unique ecosystem, environmental and land use litigation is a common occurrence in southern Florida. We have advised numerous clients on these types of matters, including cases involving:

  • Citizen Enforcement Suits
  • Air Quality and Emissions Issues
  • Endangered Species and Habitat Disputes
  • Sustainable Agriculture Disputes
  • Climate Change Questions

  • Zoning and Permits

Florida’s Asset Protection Laws

Key West has extremely flexible laws on asset protection. For example, Florida extends asset protection laws to part-time residents. This area of the law is complex and involved, and our legal team can help you identify situations where your finances can be protected. Examples of personal finances that are exempt from garnishment include:

  • Salary and Wages
  • Life Insurance Policies and Financial Planning Products
  • Pensions and Profit-Sharing Income
  • Disability Income
  • Miscellaneous Exemptions: Automobile, Medical Savings Accounts, and Unemployment Benefits
