Security & Peace of Mind
Security and peace of mind are key when hiring a real estate lawyer. At Seif Law Firm, we understand that the process of buying and selling homes, as well as moving all of your belongings from one property to another, involve very busy and stressful times for most people. Thus, we continually strive to alleviate the stress involved by always pursuing successful closings of your real transactions without any complications. We make every effort to give you peace of mind until your deal is done, and you have either the keys or a Contract in your hand on closing.
Notarizing Signatures on Legal Documents
Many legal documents such as an affidavit, statutory declaration, or government form require an authenticated signature before a notary public. In this scenario, you will sign the legal document in front of one of our lawyers, which they will validate.
Certified True Copy of Documents
This type of notarization involves certifying copies of original documents as valid copies. This practice is common for forms of identification, transcripts, degrees, diplomas, and certificates. Our lawyers will authenticate that the photocopy is indeed an accurate representation of the original document, confirming that no alterations or changes have been made to it.
