Meet David D. Lyons

Commercial Real Estate Lawyer

"I like practising real estate law for the unique challenges which arise in the course of our work.  Each deal or lease presents its own set of circumstances, and like putting together the pieces of a puzzle, it is my job to ensure that all of the pieces of the deal fit together to ensure my client is best protected both now and in the future."

  • David took care of my legal needs in the sale of my condo and purchase of a house last December. The deals closed a week before Christmas, and I appreciated that David helped alleviate the additional stress of closing at that time of the year. He answered my questions promptly and took care to protect my interests in every detail. By arranging to have the papers ready for signature prior to closing date, he certainly relieved the time pressures on moving day! I recommended my son and his wife to David for their real estate needs and they also were impressed with the way he put them at ease and explained the procedures to them. Maureen Murphy-Parris, London On.
