Skillful real estate litigators serve Contra Costa and Napa counties

Our civil litigation team has represented parties in numerous disputes over property rights, such as cases stemming from conflicts over:

  • Commercial and residential landlord-tenant issues
  • Boundary lines
  • Eminent domain
  • Reverse condemnation
  • Property foreclosures

We have worked with a wide range of stakeholders, providing effective counsel in potentially contentious cases for parties such as planned unit developments (PUDs), homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and public agencies.

In foreclosure cases, we have represented both property owners and lien holders, advising parties on their options from loan modifications and workouts to short sales, and working through mortgage and trust deed issues, to find solutions that will be in our clients’ best interests.

Firm defends business owners and landlords facing ADA claims

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public accommodations to be accessible to persons with disabilities.  Access issues include everything from having enough preferential parking spaces to curb cuts, ramps, automatic doors and lifts and countless other building modifications and adaptive devices. The law gives private persons the right to sue for damages under the ADA, and lawsuits and settlements have proliferated since the Act was passed in 1990, with many settlements well over the million-dollar mark.

Our firm has handled numerous ADA cases, representing and defending business owners and commercial landlords against allegations that their property is out of compliance with the voluminous ADA rules and regulations.

Effective advocates take on construction law disputes and land use matters

Our firm’s attorneys work with property owners, investors and developers, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and others associated with construction projects to negotiate, prepare, or review contracts and subcontracts. We also represent parties in payment disputes and have litigated matters involving payment bonds, performance bonds, stop notices and mechanics’ liens. Our trial lawyers are also knowledgeable and familiar with construction defect litigation involving allegations ranging from negligent designs to the use of substandard or defective materials and faulty building practices.

When it comes to land development, we provide reliable guidance based on practical experience to help you remove impediments to your goals. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all facets of California land use law, including:

  • Residential, commercial and industrial zoning
  • Environmental impact studies
  • Permitting
  • Eminent domain claims
  • Easements
  • Supportive infrastructure

Navigating California law for purposes of land development can be complex, but a crucial misstep can inflect costly delays. We provide the legal advice necessary for a smooth and successful project.
