Real estate transactions are often the largest and most important purchases in clients’ lives. Real estate and business transactions can be complicated, but they do not have to be. Our firm has significant experience in assisting businesses and individuals in the buying and selling of residential and commercial properties.
If you or your business are involved in a dispute regarding real estate ownership or otherwise, our office can help you resolve the matter. Our firm has decades of experience solving real estate disputes in and out of court. We recognize your need to resolve your problems outside of court to avoid the time and expense of litigation. However, there are times when it is necessary to litigate. Evans Crowe has vast experience in successfully handling complex real estate and business litigation.
We also represent clients in the following real estate matters:

Estate of Probate Administration.
The Probate process is the method by which your Estate or that of a loved one is transferred to heirs and beneficiaries. If there is a Will or if there is no Will, our firm will guide you to insure the orderly transfer of your Estate assets. We will:
- Probate the Will (open an Estate)
- Open an Estate without a Will
Estate planning is one of the most important steps you can take to insure that your property and health care wishes are taken care of. If you, or a loved one, do not have a Will, you should have one. Not only does a Will insure your property is distributed according to your wishes, its existence will make the administration of your estate simpler and less costly. Additionally, estate planning provides guidance for guardianship of your children, if necessary, and avoids unnecessary taxes. (Unfortunately, many people learn this the hard way.) Our office can help you with the following Estate planning tools:
- Simple or complex Wills (for tax avoidance)
- Living Wills
- Advance Medical Directives
- Irrevocable Trusts
- Living Trusts
- Testamentary Trusts
- Charitable Trusts

Appeals and Appellate Law
Winning or losing at trial does not always mean your case is over. If you prevail at trial, the other party may file an appeal in the Supreme Court of Alabama. And, if you do not prevail, you may want to know if you have grounds to appeal to the Supreme Court.
As a former staff attorney for the Supreme Court of Alabama, Evans Crowe has successfully filed many appeals. Our office can advise you whether an appeal is feasible, and, if so, Evans Crowe can file an appeal on your behalf. If you are considering an appeal or an appeal has been filed by the other party, please contact our office.
