About Elite Legal
At Elite Legal Support Services Inc., we offer freelance real estate law clerk services to lawyers and law firms to assist with the due diligence, title searching and preparation of residential and commercial real estate files. Our team of professional law clerks are available to help move your practice forward with the confidence that you have an dynamic and competent team behind you without any overhead costs. Recently we have added a highly experienced corporate and wills/estates law clerk to our organization to compliment the real estate services we offer. We look forward to working with you!
Your Business is Our Business
We saw a need in the real estate industry for capable off-site law clerks for all the work after the sale. Lawyers don’t need to be spending their time managing files, and a full-time in-house clerk may not be the answer for everyone. We take your business seriously, and we accept nothing less than 100% satisfaction and timeliness with, of course, confidentiality and integrity assured. We have a strong sense of proprietorship meaning that we treat your business like our business.
Our clients trust us to finish what they have started. The contractual obligations of property sales are many, and they change on a regular basis. Real estate lawyers need law clerks whom they can trust. Our clients trust us with their everyday business, their big closings, their complicated files and even their work while they are on holiday. We will keep you informed and up to speed on your files’ progress and you can continue with the work you love.
