I have received many emails over the past several months to ask what happened to the postings on PuertoPenascoPost. My most recent post here was in April of this year. That post coincided pretty closely with the beginning of my studies for the Arizona bar exam (a daunting, time-consuming task).
I'm happy to report that since then, I have passed the Arizona bar exam and am now fully licensed to practice law in Arizona. For those of you who don't know me as well, my original work background was practicing corporate/transactional law in a major Chicago law firm. Following that I set off to do real estate development in Arizona and eventually ended up focusing most of my efforts in Puerto Peñasco.
With the economy in its current state, I have decided to turn back to the law and am happy to let everyone know that I have decided to open up my own private law practice. You can read more about it here if you wish. I will be focusing on company formations, business transactions, real estate, securities and general corporate law in my practice.
No doubt I will still be making frequent trips to one of my favorite destinations, Puerto Peñasco, for the beaches, Pollo Lucas chicken, the papas at the taco stand on the corner of Melchor Ocampo and Sonora, a couple of Sols and of course to see many of the friends I've made over the last three years.
As for the state of the real estate industry there, I will just say that there are many great things to come for the town that used to be a sleepy fishing village. Like Arizona, it is feeling the current hangover from the weak economy and some oversaturation. But I can say with certainty that in 10 years, the people who decide to buy a condominium in 2009 and 2010 will be very happy that they got in when they could still get a great place on the beach for the future generations of their family for a bargain price.
Hopefully all of my readers are well and I expect that I will be blogging soon about real estate in the context of the law. I will put a link up here when I have it up and running and hope to hear from you then.
