Areas of Practice


San Francisco is one of the most expensive housing markets in the country. This is due to the limited supply of rental units and the high demand fueled by a booming high tech economy. This competitive market has created certain tensions between landlords and tenants.

Our landlord-tenant practice includes rent increase issues, repairs and services issues, termination of lease, and more.

EVICTION defense


Unlawful detainer actions can be used against a tenant who fails to pay rent or perform a condition. They can also be used against a former homeowner after a foreclosure sale. Unlawful detainer actions are summary proceedings, meaning they move fast. It is important to have legal representation as soon as possible.

Our eviction defense practice includes buyout negotiations, owner move in defense, retaliatory eviction defense, and more.

estate planning


An estate plan refers to the means by which your estate is preserved during your lifetime and distributed to your loved ones upon your passing. It is one of the most thoughtful things you can do for your loved ones. It is also a sobering task and can take some soul-searching.

Our estate planning practice includes estate planning for non-U.S. citizens, leaving money to a special needs child, planning for pets, and more.

real estate law


Real estate law governs buying, using and selling real property. Legal issues arise when title or ownership rights are challenged. This can be in the form of title claim, encroachment, restrictive covenant, or other. Disputes also arise when sellers fail to disclose material facts about the property.

Our real estate practice includes HOA governance and noise issues, forms of ownership issues, real property transfer disclosure issues, and more.
