Success L aw
Driving down Brickell Avenue, one can’t help but notice the massive
developments being erected. Here we are in 2017, and the global
economy has shifted once again — the European market is on the
brink of collapse, many South American countries are experiencing
significant political and economic turmoil, and yet construction
in our city continues. These factors, coupled with construction
delays, have buyers turning to lawyers to attempt to cancel their
purchase contract and recover their deposit. Most pre-construction
contracts or purchase agreements contain terms, conditions and
language intended to bring the developer or seller in compliance with
both Federal and Florida State laws, which in turn become binding
conditions. These conditions are the tools to argue for these deposits.
Developers, however, have become wiser and have required buyers
to place more money in escrow than previously required and made
their contracts a little more air-tight. In these cases, it’s necessary
for the buyer to seek the help of an experienced litigation attorney
to recoup the initial investment, preferably one familiar with the
particular hurdles that face the foreign investor. At the Law Offices of
Adorno-Cunill & Damas, PL, we’ve helped countless buyers recover the
deposits they’ve placed for pre-construction developments since the
recession, and are experts in this kind of complicated litigation and
eager to assist a client in any way we can.

An integral aspect of working well
with an attorney is a clear and up-
front billing structure. While any
legal service is bound to be costly,
thousands of dollars in unexpected
fees can be a serious shock during an already anxious time.
CHECKS & BALANCES
While referrals and word-of-
mouth are some of the best ways
to opt for an advocate, a cursory
glance at your State Bar’s website
should always precede picking a
litigator. This site will list any disciplinary infractions incurred
during the counselor’s career.

sister’s second cousin, but hiring an
untested tax attorney to handle your
contentious divorce is a big no-no.
Make sure to find a lawyer who
specializes in resolving cases involving the issue at hand.
