Closing the Deal

At Smith, Tumlin, McCurley & Patrick, P.C., we know how to close a deal, whether it’s a real estate transaction, probate matter, new incorporation or tax matter. For more than 40 years we have been a reliable and stable fixture in the Cobb County legal community. We are proud of our impeccable reputation for integrity, responsiveness, expertise and quality legal work.

In Negotiation

Commercial and Residential
Real Estate Transactions

We consider ourselves as “deal makers”, and that is evidenced by closing more than $3 Billion in commercial and real estate transactions.  Whether representing a developer in a multi-million dollar acquisition and development transaction, putting together a complex IRC Section 1031 tax deferred exchange, closing a sophisticated commercial undertaking or handling a residential real estate closing, the same care and attention is given to each real estate matter.
