How to find a RE Attorney?

2 Replies

BP, I'm looking for an attorney to advise on one of my Reno, Nevada projects but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any tips on how to track down a reputable attorney? I tried looking around the site for an attorney-specific forum, but maybe I missed it. 

Any help would be much appreciated!

@Cody Strickland - You may have already tried this, but have you reached out to any contacts you have in Reno, such as your PM, lender, agent, etc?  

If that doesn't work, I'd reach out to a Reno-based REIA or similar group for recommendations. I think that's more likely to lead you to an investor-approved real estate attorney.

You could also try the Washoe Country Bar Associations list by practice area for real property lawyers (where it says "select a category", choose "real property"):

The Nevada Bar Association has a referral service, but I don't know how likely you are to find someone who gets investors:

Best of luck,


I'm a real estate agent in the area. I refer all my investors to Heather Ijames.  If you need a probate lawyer, I suggest Angie Elquist    If you have any real estate needs otherwise, I'd love to chat with you about what you are looking for, Cody.  I work with a lot of investors and run a Real Estate Investors group who meets every third Wednesday of the month at 6pm at my training facility here at my brokerage.  We've been meeting since before I was a licensed realtor. Please, keep me in mind. I'm happy to share their information if you contact me directly. Please let them know I referred you.
