I am a real estate litigation attorney devoted to meeting the litigation needs of individuals, small businesses, contractors and real estate developers throughout Pasadena and the surrounding areas in California. I troubleshoot problems as early in the process as possible, and when disputes do arise, I resolve them both in and, often, out of the courtroom.
I bring 32 years of experience, skill and tenacity — combined with warmth and personal focus — to my practice as I provide solution-driven services in the most cost-effective manner that makes good business sense for you and for your bottom line. Before I began the practice of law, I was a licensed real estate broker for five years; I know the real estate industry inside and out. Litigation may not always be necessary: I am able to offer options because I am a court-appointed arbitrator, and I help in private mediation in real estate disputes.
I work hard to earn the respect of both clients and peers: I have been awarded an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® — the highest recognition possible in the legal industry — for my professionalism and ethics. I am listed in Top Ten Real Estate Lawyers of San Gabriel Valley and in Top 100 Real Estate Lawyers in Los Angeles. Many referrals come to my practice from real estate brokers, real estate agents, contractors, designers and real estate lawyers who focus only on transactional work.
When clients come to me to resolve their unique real estate disputes, people see only me and receive my full focus and one-to-one attention. No matter how complex your situation is, I bring it down to its simplest level of understanding so that I can tailor my services to meet your specific needs. I carefully explain your options and the legal process, and together, we choose the best strategy to accomplish your goals. Then I pursue that strategy by means of negotiation or advocacy before trial and appellate courts or through other forums. At every step, I keep you updated. Communication is always my goal: I want to ensure that everyone ― the client, the judge and the jury — knows what is happening.
I help in the following types of cases:
