  • Loan Package Preparation and Review Our staff is diligent and attentive, endeavoring to deliver accuracy, consistency, and efficiency on every loan closing package. When there are unforeseen changes to a loan, we will redraw the documents to suit your commercial needs in a timely manner.
  • Loan Document Negotiation We believe that your time is precious. We will honor this belief by reviewing lender-provided loan documents, noting risks or terms that you should carefully consider. If necessary, we will negotiate with the lender, or its counsel, to revise these documents.
  • Legal Review of Lender Documents Some lenders expect to use their own documents and forms. Our staff of professionals will review, and if needed, negotiate modifications to these documents.
  • Compliance with Texas “Unauthorized Practice of Law” regulations In Texas, the preparation of notes, deeds of trust and other instruments affecting title to real property constitutes the practice of law. Consequently, outside counsel must prepare or review such documents. See Tex. Gov. Code § 83.001; Hexter Title & Abstract Co., Inc. v. Grievance Committee, 179 S.W. 2d 946 (Tex. 1944).
