Our Legal Specialties
Real Estate Law
Property law is constantly changing in California. As a landlord, tenant, property owner, or buyer, it is important that you know what your legal rights and obligations are. Our office will ensure you know the current applicable laws, and we can guide you through whatever difficult situation you may face with your residential or commercial property.
Whether you want to form a new business, maintain an existing business, buy or sell a business, or enter into business contracts, our office will ensure that the terms of the documents are fully explained to you, and that you understand your legal obligations in starting a new business venture.
When a loved one passes away without a trust, and that person owned assets totaling $150,000 or more, a probate will likely need to be initiated in order to transfer the assets to the heirs of the decedent or the proper beneficiaries. Our office can help you determine whether a probate is necessary in your particular situation, and whether alternatives to probate are available.
