Our firm has substantial experience in real estate law and litigation. Real estate matters tend to encompass numerous interrelated legal disciplines-like the law of contracts, torts, restitution, equity, and procedure to name a few-such that a practitioner's understanding of the geography of real estate cases is essential. Our areas of emphasis include transactional fraud and nondisclosure cases, professional (broker/agent, inspector, appraiser, etc.) liability, construction and construction disputes, easements, encroachments, and other landownership issues, and landlord-tenant and homeowners association matters.

Our firm's First Amendment practice includes the representation of clients against what are known as Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (or "SLAPPs"). SLAPP cases involve an abuse of the judicial process by the filing of a lawsuit primarily to chill the valid exercise of the constitutional rights of free speech or petition. Attorney Ariel Sabban is the firm's resident specialist in anti-SLAPP motions, and has successfully represented numerous clients who have been inappropriately sued in violation of California's anti-SLAPP statute (Code of Civil Procedure § 425.16). Importantly, the anti-SLAPP statute mandates recovery of attorney's fees by a successful defendant from an offending plaintiff. Mr. Sabban has litigated numerous anti-SLAPP motions in both the trial and appellate courts and has been awarded substantial attorney's fees as a result.
