Real Estate Law

Whether commercial or residential, GMP can help ensure that all aspects of your real estate transaction proceed smoothly, that deeds are properly recorded, or your lease and transactional documents meet your expectations. We can help you to get construction permits and regulatory approvals.  And, if there is trouble with the transaction we can represent your interest in court, as needed.


We represent clients at hearings held by the Zoning Commission, Board of Zoning Adjustment, and the Historic Preservation Review Board. We can also advise you on dealing with other real estate related boards such as the Real Property Tax Appeals Commission, the Board for the Condemnation of Insanitary Buildings, the National Capital Planning Commission and its sibling, the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts.
