Providing Legal Counsel To Southwest Virginians In A Variety Of Practice Areas

Most individuals need the services of a lawyer only a handful of times in their life, but these occasions are milestone events, such as the purchase of a home or commercial property, a divorce, an accident that results in serious injury, or the need to create an estate plan that protects your assets and passes them along to the proper heirs when you die.

At the law firm of Gilbert & Bird PC, we provide professional legal counsel in a client-friendly manner across a broad array of practice areas. Our attorneys serve clients throughout southwest Virginia from offices in Smith Mountain Lake and Roanoke.

At Gilbert & Bird PC, we approach our role as legal counselors literally, taking the time to understand every client's situation and objectives thoroughly before creating a strategic approach that will accomplish those goals.

We work with clients in the areas of estate planning, real estate, family law, personal injury and criminal defense, as well as business law.

Respected Roanoke Valley Real Estate Lawyer

Our real estate work includes representing individuals and businesses in a variety of residential and commercial real estate matters, from sales and purchase contracts to title searches, zoning and land use disputes, boundary line disputes and adverse possession claims.

Attorney James I. Gilbert IV is among a handful of real estate lawyers in the state who handles transactional matters such as closings and also takes on real estate cases involving litigation.

Whether assisting with an $80,000 purchase or an $8 million purchase, we bring the same high level of personal attention and care to every client, in real estate law and all other practice areas.

We place a high priority on resolving matters efficiently and cost-effectively. We look to achieve fair solutions through negotiations whenever possible and avoid prolonged — and expensive — litigation.

If a fair resolution cannot be achieved through negotiation, however, we are meticulous in our preparation to go to trial and always ready to go to court to protect your best interests.

We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take. Call 540-296-4095 or use our contact form to schedule an appointment.
