Our team has over 25 years legal experience, with a focus on the real estate industry.
Ms. Spellman began her real estate career in 1989 wherein she was involved in real estate investment and property management for both commercial and residential properties. She was also responsible for maintaining investor relationships and legal matters relating to various partnerships' assets. Part of those duties would include drafting agreements, offers, modifications, contracts and other related documents. Prior to that, she was in the construction industry.
In 1995, Ms. Spellman started her career with one of the largest public homebuilders in the Inland Empire. She reported directly to the chief legal officer and would perform extensive legal research for a variety of issues ranging from construction defects, labor law, contracts, administrative hearings, real estate and tax issues.
Upon passing the bar exam in 2003, she then began work as Vice President and General Counsel of one of the largest private homebuilders in the Inland Empire. Her areas of expertise were real estate acquisitions and due diligence, as well as management of the forward planning and development departments, entitlements, financing, insurance and construction and sale of over 730 homes.
In late 2008, Ms. Spellman narrowed her focus from homebuilding to finance. Adding to her vast transactional, contract and negotiation skills, she now includes corporate formations, and financing renegotiations in her arsenal of skills.
