Does anyone have an experienced real estate attorney recommendation?

This would be for Wake County, not sure if that matters, I need to have someone investigate a deed issue.

Do most real estate attorneys do free consultations? Mainly to allow me to explain the issue, discuss and provide their costs, if I need their assistance etc...

Thanks in advance.

We had a similar issue in Durham County. I would check for an attorney with a NC Real Estate certification. Essentially means they've passed a test of NC Real Estate law so they're probably a bit better versed than folks who specialize in Closings.

We met with Chip Reinhardt in Durham. He chatted with us for about 30 minutes and gave us lots of good advice relative to things we could do without hiring him. He didn't charge for that consult.

when you say issue, I assume you mean "error"? Is this an error that you feel your closing attorney created or overlooked - thus you're not going back to them? Was it new constrcution and you agreed to use the builder's suggested closing attorney?

most real estate attorneys will not charge you for a consultation & most will do the work on a set fee basis provided it is not litigation-related (i.e., if it's title updates, changes, re-recordings, etc.).
