Professional License Board Represention
Many professions require practitioners to be licensed by state agencies and regulatory boards. Our lawyers represent real estate professionals in licensing hearings and proceedings. We provide legal counsel throughout Californian matters involving charges of professional misconduct.
Effective, Cost-Efficient Resolution
We understand that prolonged disputes or full-fledged litigation can be disruptive and costly, particularly for pending real estate transactions or in-progress development. Our trial lawyers prepare for a courtroom fight, but we explore alternative dispute resolution (mediation, arbitration and negotiation) to minimize legal expense and exposure to damages.
