Westchester attorney asks would you bring a knife to a gunfight – or why you need a lawyer at closing?

As a lawyer I am always commiserating with someone about something.  That’s what we do – listen to complaints and solve problems.  Often, I am just tossing it around with a colleague and in this case it’s my good friend and realtor Phil Faranda.  He recently bemoaned his frustration when a client told him there was no need for a lawyer to close on a house.  “What,” Phil screamed!  He vented with me and that turned into a guest blog on that very topic over at Phil’s Place.  Take a gander – don’t go unprotected!
