I do not believe that clients are well served by an attorney who tries to be all things to all people. In the increasingly complex world in which we live in, I do not believe anyone can be proficient in more than a limited number of areas. Accordingly, in addition to ADR services which are explained elsewhere on this website, Richard J. Figura, PC offers a limited range of legal services with a primary focus in the following areas:
-General counsel services to local units of government – cities, villages, townships and counties – and their various boards and commissions
-Planning and Zoning - including general counseling, zoning ordinance drafting and master plan drafting
-Eminent domain
-Property tax – including counseling and representation of clients in tax appeals before the Michigan Tax Tribunal
-Special assessment proceedings – including the establishment of special assessment districts and litigating special assessment issues before the Michigan Tax Tribunal
-General Real Estate – including drafting of purchase agreements, deeds, land contracts, development agreements, easements and real estate litigation
-General business – including formation of corporations, LLCs and limited litigation services in connection with business disputes
-Drafting of wills
