In the fast-paced and high-stakes construction arena, swift and sure legal counsel is essential. We believe that a lean team with deep experience in their field is better than an army of lawyers.  For our clients that means getting the attention they deserve without the red tape and inflated costs.

REAL Law, LLC is distinguished by the capability to handle all facets of a construction project – from land acquisition through certificate of occupancy.  We are creative, enthusiastic, energetic, aggressive, direct, fast-paced…and ready to get to work for you.


We serve investors, property developers, and contractors using a guided approach that we have refined to allow our clients peace of mind through all phases of a transaction or project. We start with development strategy and end with final completion of construction, bringing our experience and expertise to bear at every phase in between. Our attention to detail enables our clients to focus on their business while we focus on risk mitigation strategies that align with their goals.

“Without Jackie’s early involvement in a project, we would have added almost 30% to our timeline. Her attention to detail and upfront thinking, we were able to realize what was missing in our business plan.”

We have systematized our approach to routine matters, utilizing staff and paralegals to the maximum extent possible, to bring more value to our clients. This approach allows our attorneys to focus more on problem-solving and strategy. We pride ourselves on finding creative solutions to sophisticated issues by relying on solid working relationships within the community and our constant learning in the business of real estate development and construction. By representing both developers and contractors, we understand issues on both sides of transactions, disputes, and teaming.
