Landlord-Tenant Law

Effective Landlord-Tenant Attorneys


Renting property is a business.  We understand the disruption of business caused by residential and commercial tenants who fail to pay rent.  Although California unlawful detainer law provides a summary proceeding for landlords who seek to evict a tenant, these proceedings are complex and involve strict filing deadlines and notice requirements.  As such, you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to help you successfully resolved your landlord-tenant issue.

We provide sophisticated legal counsel to our landlord clients with their residential and commercial properties.  With over 30 years of experience, we provide the expert knowledge and guidance you need for a successful conclusion of your case.  The full range of services that we routinely provide our landlord clients include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • 3 Day Notices
  • 30 and 60 Day Notices
  • Default Judgments
  • Jury and Bench Trials
  • Relief from Automatic Stay in Tenant Bankruptcy
  • Removal of Employee Tenants
  • Obtaining and Enforcing Money Judgments
  • Illegal Activity on Your Property
  • 24-Hour Notice to Enter a Dwelling Unit
  • Mobile Home Unlawful Detainers
  • Mobile Home Residency Law
  • RV Park Occupancy Law

Knowing that each day the tenant fails to pay rent and remains in the property costs you money, our office will assist you in obtaining legal possession of your property and collecting on a money judgment.  While we offer flat fees for uncontested cases, we also provide hourly services to avail ourselves to you to respond to your landlord-tenant questions. We can protect your home or income producing property from a tenant who fails to pay rent or otherwise violates the rental agreement.


Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. We discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.


Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, we help you to protect your property and your business.
