About Charles Andrew Hillestad
SPECIALIZATION OF THE FIRM The firm is devoted exclusively to a PROPERTY LAW and BUSINESS LAW practice. That includes anything pertaining to: real estate, contracts, broker law, business creation and operation, sales, leasing, and title issues sale and development, construction and lien, security and foreclosure, leasing and eviction, hospitality and lodging, condo and homeowner association, easement and encroachment, will and trust creation, corporation and partnership, administrative and zoning, plus real estate and brokerage issues.

As a result, it does not matter much where either the clients or Mr. Hillestad happen to be physically locat
