Real Estate (Residential and Commercial Purchases/ Landlord-Tenant Law)
Real estate often represents the bulk, if not all, of the wealth that many people acquire over the course of their working lives. A home is a place where memories are made, and can be a significant source of pride for its owner. However, when one has to worry about whether or not a real estate transaction will go smoothly, the purchase of a home can become a source of signficant stress.
At Pollard Law Group, we take on your stress so you can bask in the achievement of owning your own home. From reviewing contracts put forth by sellers and acting as a liaison between the parties to the transaction and the title insurance company, Pollard Law Group can handle all of your real estate needs.
If you are a real estate investor, attorneys at Pollard Law Group help you to create leases, negotiate for the purchase of commercial real estate, and sell your property without legal headaches.
Attorneys at Pollard Law Group also have extensive experience with landlord/tenant matters. Whether you are landlord with an intractable tenant who is destroying your property or are a tenant who feels her rights are being violated by her landlord, Pollard Law Group can help.

With the advent of New York State's Compassionate Care Act in July 2014, medical marijuana has become available for patients with a very specific set of illnesses, as of 2016. As a result, many marijuana entrepreneurs have attempted to gain a foothold in the Empire State's nascent market. However, in order to enter what many consider an extraordinarily lucrative market, marijuana entrepreneurs need a litany of consultants to guide them through the process of business conception to actually dispensing marijuana product.
One of the most important consultants that the marijuana entrepreneur can have is the lawyer who is knowledgeable about all of the numerous federal, state, and municipal regulations she must comply with. Marijuana entrepreneurs also need help negotiating leases for the housing of their business and need to remain abreast of appropriate licensure procedures for themselves and their employees.
As an entrepreneur, you only want to worry about the logistics of running your business, not about whether you're breaking the law by operating your business. Attorneys at Pollard Law Group can help navigate these potential minefields and help your business thrive.
Marriage can be a wonderful thing. However, all relationships, whether friendships or familial relationships, can come to an end. Romantic relationships are no different. When a person entered into a marriage, he or she may have never considered the financial consequences of that marriage’s dissolution. However, when contemplating a divorce, it is extremely important to consult with legal counsel to make sure you either protect yourself financially or receive your fair share of assets from your soon to be former spouse.
Divorce can be an emotional ordeal and adequate legal counsel will guide you through the process in a strategic, yet compassionate fashion. Attorneys at Pollard Law Group will ensure that your financial rights in a divorce are protected to the fullest extent possible. We handle not only divorce issues, but child custody and child support modification issues.
There is an old Chinese proverb whose translation is that “wealth does not survive three generations”. Whether you have worked hard for several decades to build substantial assets or received a fortuitous windfall when you are relatively young, it’s important that you protect those assets with the proper legal instruments.
At Pollard Law Group, our attorneys provide a wide array of instruments to provide for your loved ones once you are no longer around to do so. From wills, health care proxies, and various forms of tax-avoiding trusts (tax evasion is illegal, but tax avoidance is legal and advisable), to counseling regarding the implications of purchasing different types of life insurance policies/annuities, Pollard Law Group seeks to be the firm you choose to protect your family’s wealth for three generations and beyond.
Civil Litigation/Personal Injury
One of the greatest pillars of American democracy is the rule of law. This is to say that the American government allows its citizens to protect their rights through the court system. Litigation can be misused to harm innocent people, but when used properly, it is a powerful tool in bringing about justice. When you retain Pollard Law Group, the attorneys assigned to your case will be zealous advocates for you, whether you are a business owner in a contractual dispute with a vendor, a pedestrian who was hurt by a reckless driver, or an employee who was wrongfully terminated.
Ideally, every case would be settled outside of the court system. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to admit his fault and an impartial (theoretically) arbiter, such as a judge, must be brought in to police the rights of those who have been wronged.
Pollard Law Group handles breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, employee discrimination, and other tort actions. Our attorneys are very familiar with the intricacies of New York Courts and have extensive experience with New York causes of action.
