"The firm's slogan is Responsive, Respected and Real World. I find those attributes to be a winning combination for myself as an attorney and the client. Erum has been able to build a practice that offers boutique services and an innovative fee structure.

What attracted you to a law firm that focuses on business and real estate law?
"I enjoy the transactional process that both real estate and business law provide. We can support our clients in the most effective and efficient manner since many needs are similar to clients we've worked with in the past. Also, our areas of expertise never get boring. Each account is challenging and we really get to see real results."

Is Latin a "dead language"?
KistemakerBusinessLawGroupDaytonaBeachAlthough many people think Latin is a "dead language" because it is no longer spoken the Roman language lives on in several areas. Law and medicine both have their roots in our Roman heritage and Latin terms. Latin also lives on in science and music. Here are just a few of the terms still used today.

Bona Fide or Good faith is an abstract and comprehensive term that encompasses a sincere belief or motive without any malice or the desire to defraud others, and courts use the two terms interchangeably.

Habeas Corpus in Latin translates to ''you have the body" or a writ (court order) that commands an individual or a government official who has restrained another to produce the prisoner at a designated time and place so that the court can determine the legality of custody and decide whether to order the prisoner's release.

Ex Post Facto. An ex post facto law, Latin for "from after the action" or "after the fact", also called a retroactive law

Nolo Contendere. In Latin, I will not contest it. A plea in a criminal case by which the defendant answers the charges made in the indictment by declining to dispute or admits the fact of his or her guilt.

Is it necessary for me to hire a real estate attorney?
KistemakerBusinessLawGroupDaytonaBeachIn almost every real estate transaction the question is always the same. "Is it necessary for me to hire a real estate attorney?" The answer is both simple and complex. Every state and sometimes regions within states have differing requirements. Some states leave that as an option open to the buyer and seller while others mandate it as a necessity.

Kistemaker Business Law Group or your real estate agent can advise you what the protocol is in the area in which you are buying. That is the simple answer.

The complex answer has to do with in what situation you find yourself. As a buyer or seller there are many questions. Here are just a few examples of when it might but be time to give your attorney a call.

As a Buyer, are you buying a property that is a short sale or bank owned, part of an estate sale, a commercial property or a property that could potentially have some structural issues?

If you are selling, are you the heir or executor of a property whose owner is now deceased? Are you selling a property with a non-cooperative partner or do you have that gut feeling that something could possibly go wrong based on knowledge you have about the property?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then hiring an attorney to guide you through the process would definitely be beneficial.
