Real Estate Cases: One of Our Core Practice Areas

While much real estate litigation involves many of the same issues and challenges as other commercial and business cases, many issues in real estate litigation can be unique. Hiring a law firm with experience and expertise in real estate litigation to represent you in a real estate dispute can make the difference between winning and losing, or winning more versus winning less. The Nashville real estate litigation lawyers at Pepper Law, PLC are experienced and can help you whether your case is in Nashville or any other part of Tennessee.

What is unique about real estate litigation versus other types of commercial litigation? In many real estate cases, the desired result is not an award of money damages, but some other type of relief such as injunctive relief in the form of a court order prohibiting someone from doing something or requiring them to do something. In certain real estate cases, clients may need declaratory relief in the form of a declaratory judgment establishing and declaring their property rights. The strategy for obtaining the best possible injunctive or declaratory relief for a client in a real estate dispute requires a real estate lawyer familiar with all of the angles from which your interest must be protected, now and in the future.

In real estate cases where it is important to obtain money damages, instead of injunctive or declaratory relief, or in addition to it, we have the trial experience, both in jury trial cases and bench trial cases, to recover all of the damages to which you are entitled. For many real estate disputes, the difference between a successful outcome and an unsuccessful outcome might hinge on the quality of the expert witness on your side and that expert’s preparedness for deposition or trial. We have years of experience finding the best experts for cases and ensuring that they are well prepared to testify and to face cross-examination.

If you have a real estate litigation matter in Nashville, or anywhere else in Tennessee, we will be glad to provide you with an initial consultation* at no charge.

* If we determine that your case is not the type of case we can handle based on the initial information you provide to us, we may refer you to another lawyer or lawyer referral service without having further consultation with you. We do not want to take your time with respect to a case that we know we cannot assist you with based on the initial information provided. Initial consultations provided may be by telephone.

Client Reviews
Being in a legal situation is never pleasant and something that is very emotionally and financially draining, so if you find yourself in such a situation, having a highly experienced, ethical, thoughtful, and caring legal team is critical to getting to a successful outcome sooner rather than later. Ross Pepper and his team are just that team you need. They are the best legal team you can work with and it was truly a pleasure and a huge comfort to have them supporting us in a recent very complex case that involved a boundary dispute, trespass tree removal claim, a frivolous monetary claim, and a property easement dispute. The level of strategy, honesty, and spot-on legal advice that Ross and his team provided in partnering with us as clients is second to none. While I hope we never have to deal with another legal situation like this, Ross Pepper and his firm will be my first call if and when we do. Thank you to Ross Pepper, Dan Whitaker, Beth Alexander, and Tanner Kitrell for your partnership, expertise, and a favorable outcome for a very arduous, complex, and 2-years long case!
