Many people think of attorneys as problem solvers, and they only go to a lawyer once a problem has developed. Attorney Michael Gross looks at the practice of law a little differently; he thinks of lawyers as problem preventers and hopes to help people avoid the common legal problems that people face when they fail to get adequate legal advice before embarking on business, real estate, or personal ventures.
Michael received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1977 and has spent the last three decades practicing law in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia. Michael understands that real estate and business transactions often have consequences that go far beyond their initial scope and his practice area touches on wills and probate, banking, commercial paper, and employment law. His goal is to help you before you enter into agreements and to help make sure that you are doing business on your own terms, not letting others dictate how you interact with them.
There is a popular saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and Michael wishes that every person contemplating entering into a legal relationship would heed that advice. Once a contract is signed, it is difficult, sometimes even impossible, to free someone of the obligations imposed by that contract without facing onerous penalties. It is far easier to avoid entering into a disadvantageous business agreement than to end one. If you have questions about your next real estate transaction, business agreement, wills, probate, or commercial transaction, call Michael at 301-718-2988 to schedule an appointment to discuss it prior to making a commitment.
