Attorney Profile

David A. Bieganowski


I am one of only a small handful of attorneys in the Traverse City area that specializes in real estate. Besides normal buy and sell transactions, I do a lot of strange and unusual real estate cases like boundary line disputes, adverse possession, easement issues, riparian rights, plat amendments, road vacations, deed restrictions, restrictive covenants, condo and subdivision issues, survey problems, quiet title, etc.

I also represent municipalities like townships and villages. I handle land use and zoning matters for developers, land owners and municipalities. I also handle most business and contract cases. I set up LLC’s, Corporations and S Corporations and will handle the sale of businesses.

I handle trusts, probates and probate litigation as part of my estate planning practice.
