Navigating Legal Paths And Complexities

I was recently involved with a complex real estate transaction in South Orange County that required expert help. My client retained Alex Maniscalco and Ariel Bedell with Loftin | Bedell P.C. who were both instrumental in helping to navigate and negotiate to a positive conclusion. We were under very tight deadlines and it was obvious both are skilled attorney’s and were consistently going above and beyond to meet the deadlines. Without a doubt we would not have met our goals in the time required without their help.

Ariel Bedell, Esq. came highly recommended to us (by a real estate specialist), and for good reason. As a non-profit organization that needed to navigate a real estate transaction, Ariel and Loftin | Bedell P.C. team worked with us to include our staff and board in the process, while delivering quality work, often before projected deadlines. The professionalism and responsiveness of the firm left us confident that we were in good hands, through the entire process, and the real estate transaction was successfully completed with all parties satisfied.

As our church and ministries were growing, we sought legal counsel to help us assure compliance with the law and plan for the future. We knew that we needed someone who was familiar the unique issues that religious non-profits face.

Working with Loftin | Bedell P.C. gave us ‘peace of mind’ from the beginning to the end of a very unusual and difficult equestrian matter. Sue Loftin has a unique talent for cutting through complexity and outlining possible next-step options. Again, their professionalism and manner gave us confidence and ‘peace of mind’.



As a son of immigrant parents I began working in high school helping operate our family chain of retail stores. I interfaced on a regular basis with the family attorney and even aspired to the legal profession. Now after over 20 years in the Real Estate Finance Industry, I’ve put to use much of what I learned then. However up until I began working with Sue Loftin and Alex Manisclco, I had never truly had much faith in my attorneys. Sue and Alex have truly shown me that they understand me, my business model, and my struggles as a business owner. Its easy to communicate with them, and I can get an answer quickly when it counts. I’m a satisfied client and look forward to many more years working together.

Its not easy running a small business, struggling to grow in a highly competitive field. That’s why having solid legal representation is priceless. I’ve been working with years now and he sets the bar for other attorneys to aspire to. He’s experienced, honest, fair, provides sage advice, and is simply a great guy to work with. I often hear my counterparts at other companies share less-than-flattering stories about attorneys they’ve hired, and with Alex and Loftin | Bedell P.C., there’s simply nothing to worry about. I value my relationship with Alex and TLF, I’m a happy client, and expect our professional relationship continue well into the future.

Loftin | Bedell P.C. did an extra ordinary job of helping us through some very complex and challenging legal issues at our park. Ariel and her team gave us tremendous representation through it all and now we have a Title 25, fully compliant park. We are truly grateful.

Bob Fleet, Greenfield Mobile Estates


We hired Loftin about 3 months ago as our Corporate Counsel. I’ve worked with a lot of different Legal Firms but after my first meeting with Alex I knew right away this firm was exceptional and they had an extraordinary depth of business and legal knowledge and experience in a number of complex issues. When discussing issues with Loftin they understand our position and provide creative solutions and I’m confident that they will be aggressive and fight for us when necessary. Loftin has been extremely accessible and timely when we are faced with tight deadlines and they always exhibit the highest degree of professionalism and conduct. I have been extremely happy with Loftin and the only thing I regret is not finding them sooner.

As a contractor and developer is extremely important to have a good relationship with everybody when doing business. Sometimes when doing business our personal decision goes beyond our legal knowledge, then it is extremely important to count with a good lawyer for the legal advice or the legal action to take. I encountered that Loftin | Bedell P.C. and especially have the knowledge, they are interested in the matter to help at the highest level of responsibility, a quality so hard to find today and more important they are there at any step to the end. Definitely I will count with them again in any of my legal dealings and I sincerely recommend they services to anyone for the need of legal counsel.
They are also up today with technology and as extra convenience they take credit cards for payment.

I would like to thank Loftin | Bedell P.C. for a job well done. AS a new client to the firm who does not live on the West Coast – all correspondence was by email and phone. Everyone at the firm I talked with was helpful and in particular Attorney Ariel Bedell was attentive and conscientious as she guided me through a new commercial property and business contract. I look forward to working with them in the future. Thank you, Anne H.
