The attorneys at Lazan Glover & Puciloski have long been recognized as top real estate attorneys in the Berkshires. We work together as a team and are uniquely equipped to handle any real property issue that can arise. We have extensive experience in residential and commercial real estate transactions, including real estate purchases, sales, leases, and refinances; land use, zoning, and permitting, including appearances before town boards and commissions; resolving title issues; real property litigation in the Land Court and appellate work.
We have focused our practice on real property because we love this area of law. Real property law dates back centuries, but it is also constantly changing. Our goal is to get your closing done, secure your special permit, or confirm your property rights while resolving whatever issues may arise in the process. Our community-wide relationships allow us to connect our clients with the right people to attain their goals. Our depth of knowledge and creative problem-solving skills allow us to provide top-tier representation seamlessly and with personal attention, whether at a closing table, before a Planning Board, or in Land Court.
In 2003, David Lazan, Peter Puciloski, and Alexandra Glover founded the firm with James McLindon and Scott Sanes as of counsel. Though all of the attorneys at LGP previously lived and worked in large cities, they each chose to move to the Berkshires for the unsurpassed quality of life. We have “big city” law firm experience that has, for two decades, been paired with our “small town,” community-oriented values.
When they founded the firm, David, Peter, and Alex had one goal in mind: provide the highest level of legal service in the Berkshires through a client-focused approach that achieves lasting solutions. Our practice has grown and become even more focused since 2003, but our commitment remains the same: present each client with all available options – not just the ones that “close the deal” the fastest – and work with all parties to attain the best outcome available. A testament to our success is our long-term client base and our reputation throughout the Berkshires for our smart, sophisticated, and responsive representation of clients.
We understand that real property is not just land – to most people, property has emotional value far surpassing its monetary value. Whether you’re buying your first house, selling your longtime family home, or fighting for your rights to use and enjoy your property, we strive to meet you where you are, listen to your goals, and do what it takes to help you attain them. We want you to walk away not only satisfied, but also informed and protected from future surprises that could affect your property.
Unlike other firms in the Berkshires, we handle more than just closings. We are experienced in all aspects of real property. If you need to clear up a title issue, resolve a boundary dispute, obtain a Certificate of Compliance from a Conservation Commission, a permit from a special permit granting authority in your town, or protect your rights in the Land Court, we can handle it as we have done successfully so many times. Our attorneys appear regularly before town and city boards and commissions throughout Berkshire County. And, although we are centered in the Berkshires, we handle significant matters statewide, including on the Cape and Islands. We appear regularly in the Land Court in Boston to litigate zoning appeals, quiet title actions and property-related disputes.
The depth of the experience of each of our attorneys, and our commitment to excellence, is evidenced in the Attorney Profiles on this website. In addition to professional expertise, we have also built our law firm on certain values.
Our community is our home, and we are involved. We have actively participated in the following organizations, among others: The Board of the Southern Berkshire Chamber of Commerce; Community Development Corporation of the Southern Berkshires (affordable housing), the Alford Land Trust, the Sheffield Land Trust, the Town of Alford (Planning Board Member); the Town of Alford (Select Board Member); BerkShares (a local currency movement), The Trustees of Reservations (a Massachusetts land conservation organization), Fairview Hospital, Great Barrington Rotary Club, Hudson Valley Fresh (a dairy cooperative), and the Department of Children and Families (foster care reviews).
