Carmel & Reyes PLLC was established by Brigitte Reyes in February 2022.

The firm evolved out of the internationally-recognized, AV Rated boutique firm, Carmel & Carmel, P.C., founded by the late Frank J. Carmel (1954-2021) in 1984.

Carmel & Reyes is filling the “big shoes” of Carmel & Carmel as a leading firm in advising those involved in residential, resort and hospitality development on the legal considerations involved in the interstate promotional sales of real estate and helping navigate complicated regulatory frameworks.
