Mr. Tedrick is a seasoned litigator with experience in all phases of commercial litigation in both state and federal court.  His present practice focuses on evaluating potential claims and advising corporations and individuals in the early phases of disputes to best position clients for the critical decision of wether to pursue or defend formal legal actions or work towards a negotiated resolution through various early stage ADR alternatives.  Mr. Tedrick regularly appears in court for existing clientele but is not currently taking on new trial practice clients.

Mr. Tedrick represents a variety of clients in commercial and residential real estate transactions on matters ranging from drafting and negotiation of purchase agreements, disputes among parties to a transaction, to closing and post-closing issues affecting title.  Mr. Tedrick has a wealth of experience in resolving complex title issues such as judgments, liens and over leveraged debt.  Additionally, Mr. Tedrick represents investment companies in the purchase of real estate backed debt facilities involving both residential and commercial paper.

During the Great Recession of the late 2000’s, Mr. Tedrick became an expert in the specialized practice area of real estate debt workout, helping hundreds of homeowners and businesses navigate the complex process of foreclosure, short sale, lien negotiation, and loan modification.  The reality is that while the downturn in the economy prompted a spike in the percentage of distressed real estate, individuals and corporations continue to face challenges with debt workout stemming from hardships that can arise in any economic environment.  Today, Mr. Tedrick advises commercial and residential property owners threatened with the loss of business or home through overly burdensome debt, liens, or foreclosure.
