At Scott Rosen, P.A. we provide "hands on" involvement which is vital to the successful representation of our clients. We have been representing individuals and corporations in connection with all types of real estate matters since 1988. Our clients are counseled on numerous real estate issues such as financing, leasing, purchases and sales, development, title insurance, litigation and contractual duties, obligations and responsibilities. Rather than a "title company," we are attorneys who provide title insurance. This results in an added benefit to our clients in that our focus is not simply on completing a transaction, but on effectively and aggressively representing our clients' interests. As part of our litigation services, we have represented clients in connection with mortgage and other lien/security interest foreclosures, purchase and sale agreement disputes, quiet title actions, lawsuits for and against contractors and all other contested matters relating to real property.
