About Us


Experienced san Francisco Real Estate Attorneys


The truth is, 99 percent of cases do not go to trial. The two sides eventually come to an agreement and settle. We know this from the thousands of cases we have handled. Therefore, we critically analyze our client’s situation to see if we can help them find an agreement earlier rather than later. The difference will mean enormous savings in time and legal fees.

We will do everything in our power to successfully resolve your landlord-tenant case or real estate dispute in as little time as possible. We have the resources to take on complex real estate cases and the size to keep you from becoming more than just a case file.

Experience With A Personal Touch


Experience matters when facing a real estate contract dispute, a disagreement between a landlord and tenant, or any other issue in the real estate sphere. It’s not all that matters, however.

We recognize that legal services are an investment, and you deserve to see more for your money than just a good outcome. From your initial consultation until the resolution of your case, you will be treated with respect and professionalism. Our legal team is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of legal practice and client service to make your experience working with a lawyer a rewarding one.
