With Attorney Stephen Hessler’s Affiliation, Offit Kurman Opens Washington, DC Office

Washington, DC | October 17, 2017 Offit Kurman has opened a new office in Washington, DC, and is honored to welcome the location’s founding attorney, Stephen Hessler, to the firm. Mr. Hessler joins Offit Kurman as a principal attorney in the firm’s Landlord Representation Practice Group.


Mr. Hessler’s practice consists primarily of real estate litigation, running the gamut from landlord–tenant disputes, purchase and sale agreements, tenant rights of first refusal, easements, pleas of title, tax sales, forfeiture proceedings, nuisance proceedings, easement disputes, specific performance, and family and ownership disputes. He advises owners and managers of residential property, and lenders and trustees on local regulatory and statutory requirements for property ownership, management, and sale.


The DC office, Offit Kurman’s 11th location in the Mid-Atlantic, is located at 1313 F Street NW, Suite 300—just blocks away from the White House, the Supreme Court, the Capitol building, the Smithsonian museums, and numerous downtown DC landmarks.
