Representative Transactions

Commercial Leases

Renting commercial space is a big decision — the success or failure of your business may ride on certain terms of the lease.   Before you sign anything, make sure you understand and agree with the basic terms of the lease, such as the amount of rent, the length of the lease and the configuration of the physical space.  You should carefully investigate its terms to make sure the lease meets your business’s needs.  The real estate attorneys at Breen Olson & Trenton, LLP are able to help guide you through this process.  We will identify the critical lease terms and negotiate with a potential landlord on your behalf.


The housing market has started to rebound, but there are many homeowners still struggling to keep their home.  Breen Olson & Trenton, LLP has expert residential mortgage analysts who can help simplify the process of dealing with your current mortgage servicer. All modification, deed-in-lieu, or alternative workout options can be processed by the homeowner without a third-party, but Breen Olson & Trenton, LLP can simplify the process by representing you throughout the process alleviating much of the stress and time required to work with your servicers/lender.  Results are never guaranteed because there are different factors that are present for every homeowner, but the real estate experts at Breen Olson & Trenton, LLP have a thorough understanding of the process and can make progress much easier.  

Tax Lien

Investing in Arizona real property tax liens is a solid investment offering the rare combination of a conservative investment with a strong interest yield.  While most investors purchase tax liens for the interest yield, investors may need to pursue a judicial foreclosure on a tax lien.  Breen Olson & Trenton’s real estate attorneys have handled over 1,500 tax lien foreclosures throughout the state of Arizona.  If you have a portfolio of tax liens that is ready for foreclosure, Breen Olson & Trenton can help you through the judicial process or consult with you on other liquidation options.
