Legal, Attorney -Real Estate

My BusinessI have been with the law firm of Christopher J. Thornton, P.C. as an associate since my admittance to the Tennessee bar in 2013. I focus my practice on real estate and secured lending transactions, and have represented buyers, sellers, mortgage lenders and brokers, relocation companies, developers, investors, and REO asset managers in all manner of real estate transactions ranging from standard residential transactions and foreclosures to transactions involving owner financing, wrap-around loans, and commercial real estate transactions including the sale of a business. I also assist clients in matters incidental to real estate transactions or investing in real estate, including the formation of business entities.

Ideal ReferralAnyone looking to purchase, sell, or refinance a house, whether as a primary residence, second home, or investment property.

Top Problem SolvedAn elderly client was under contract to sell a home, and his children were intending to facilitate the transaction via power of attorney. As it turned out, the client was scheduled for a major surgery two days prior to the transaction (a surgery of which I was previously unaware). The morning of the surgery, the client's children called to ensure that they would still be able to use their power of attorney for the closing even if their father didn’t make it through the surgery (which they would not be able to do). The children understandably wanted to avoid the possibility of having the closing held up by probate. So, within the next couple of hours I was able to draft a revocable trust agreement which would transfer the property outside of probate if the client passed away, and then meet the client to quitclaim the property to his children as trustees of that trust. Thankfully, the client’s surgery went well and all of the proactive steps ended up unnecessary, but we were prepared for a worst case scenario.
