Stephen Hoffman began practicing law in 1986, concentrating on land use, zoning, and permitting matters. As his career progressed, his practice broadened, covering a wide array of matters pertaining to real estate. As a real estate and land use attorney, Steve focuses his practice on all aspects of real estate transactions and development, including property investigation and due diligence, land acquisition, closing and settlement services, title insurance, permitting and governmental approvals, construction, leasing, condominium and community association documents, and real estate financing with loan document review and drafting. His broad range of experience and knowledge of real estate has proved invaluable to local and national developers.
